In the village of Walsingham where we were staying, there is an old fashioned steam train which runs directly to the coastal town of Wells next the Sea - a favourite of mine! In the morning we caught the train and sat on uncovered seats, which may have been a small mistake as traveling at 5mph for thirty minutes when it's windy was quite uncomfortable! It was great to feel as if you were just cutting through the fields and the woodland though, as the train tracks were so narrow.
Once in Wells, we walked to the main high street in search of one of the best cakes we have ever tasted (we had one of these when we visited last summer). It is a chocolatey, peanut buttery, nougarty delight and completely indulgent! We had a look around some of the charity shops and old book shops and I purchased one new (old) ladybird book all about how to crochet. A wonderful book to add to my every growing collection and also useful as I have been attempting to learn how to crochet for many months now with little success! On that note, I received the new issue of Mollie Makes through my letter box this morning, and the free gift is an oh so cute wooden crochet hook!
We eventually caught the steam train back to Walsingham (this time opting to sit on covered seats). We then jumped in our car and drove over to Cromer for the remainder of the afternoon. We browsed around a few more charity, junk and book shops, where I picked up a 1950s children's illustrated dictionary for 50 pence and embarked on finding a whippy ice cream to enjoy while we strolled along the pier.
So that was our second day. I already wish I could go back, I feel that I have not yet got my complete fix of seaside this summer! One more stream of photographs to go...
