Blakeney, North Norfolk UK 
We were invited to spend a long weekend over New Year 07 with friends at Blakeney on the north Norfolk coast, staying at a holiday cottage.  We decided to take some back orads on the way up, and had to traverse this Ford with our Volkswagon.  This was the road...!  In places the roads around there were single track and had no plassing places so we were quite happy there was no traffic coming the other way.

We were the first to arrive so we went for a walk down to the Quay/harbour.  It was mearly dark by this time but the photo came out OK.  Apparently this carpark regularly floods if the tides are high, thankfully there was a carpark further up the hill not far from the cottage where we could park safely!

We had a really nice day and the entire group went walkies in various places.  This is a photo of the inlet.

I think there must be more than one inlet heading for Blakeney quay - otherwise the yacht owner wouldn't be particularly happy...

This photo is looking back towards Blakeney quay.  There were many others also out for a walk as the weather was rather good that day!

The Blakeney area is known for conservign wetlands and is some kind of bird sanctuary.  Not far from the quay is a pond for waterfowl, where we took this photo of some residents.
