At the Deserted Palace

‘All You Need Is Love’ – The Beatles

Today, I went out for the day with Spock and The Commander.  We took a day in North Norfolk, which is quite nice.  First, we went to Baconsthorpe for lunch in an old-fashioned pub (like The Cloven Hoof in Devil’s End!), then on to Cromer for afternoon tea at the seaside.  After this, to some ruins of castles and then on to the deserted ‘palace’ at Beckham.  It was, basically, a lovely day in the rural countryside and it was beautiful.  After all this, evening fell and so we went to Holt for a pint and then on to Fakenham for the same, followed by a Chinese meal and then home.

I wrote to Donna Davidson today, and Miranda (to whom I sent a tape of Lennon, Beatles, Led Zep, Hendrix and Pink Floyd).

Today’s day out was good.  Really enjoyed it.
