Along the Yare

You’d think with living at the mouth of the Yare (Yarmouth) I’d have enough of that river. But no. Early on 15th April, despite an unfavourable weather forecast, we catch the bus to Norwich and get off at the outskirts to walk a way along the River Yare.

Trowse: 15 April 2021
Can you see this? The raindrops. 15 April 2021
We’re at Whitlingham Country Park beside the Yare, trying not to get too wet: 15 April 2021
Edged by wooded hills, a former gravel quarry, those hills are steep: 15 April 2021
Precipitous! : 15 April 2021
Climbing out of the river valley… the sewerage treatment plant: 15 April 2021

Aren’t you glad cameras don’t capture smells!

Weather’s not looking any better: 15 April 2021
Canola gives colour to this landscape: 15 April 2021
Back down to the river; there are 2 pubs on our route: 15 April 2021
Oh for those hazy lazy days of summer: 15 April 2021
It won’t be long now; that river soon will be busy: 15 April 2021
Our path lurches dangerously close to the river: 15 April 2021
Reeds standing proud beneath a lowering sky: 15 April 2021
The cattle that graze the marshes here 15 April 2021
Up hill again (we’re almost at destination): 15 April 2021
The second pub along the way and destination: 15 April 2021
And now the weary walk back to the bus: 15 April 2021

Hope you’ve enjoyed our walk. By the time we get back to the bus route it’s 10 miles, the sun has come out and my feet are sore.

For Tuesday Treat I’ll show you the flowers seen on this walk. But before that, breaking habit, Monday I’m gonna treat you to birds!
