On this occasion a hotel in Kings Lynn provided our overnight accommodation, with the promise of an early start. The walk from the hotel to the ferry terminal added a mile to the total walked. If you plan on walking from the town centre then the total mileage would be sixteen. The overall plan was for the two of us to walk through to Cromer, where Joanna would return home and I would continue on walking to Lowestoft in Sussex. But, as you will see, the best laid plans do not always work out.
Along the edges of the marshes were a number of outlandish boats and huts, preumably used by the wildfowlers who come here to shoot ducks and geese.
Sandringham House lies behind the trees in the distance in this photograph. It has been the country retreat of Royals since 1862. As well as the house and private gardens, there is a 240 acre country park that is open to the public and gardens, a museum and a visitor centre.
We enjoyed good views here and further up the beach across the marshes and sands.
To cut a very long story short, I had to return to see a consultant ophthalmologist again at the hospital the next morning and he provided a diagnosis that confirmed my risk of retina detachment and advised that I should not walk and carry a loaded rucksack for at least six-weeks. Fortunately, we had packed everything up when we left to attend the appointment so did not have to return to the campsite at Hunstanton.
