Miles of Sand and Seashells – Day Two of Walking the Norfolk Coast Path

When I rolled out of my cocoon on day two I was fully expecting to be the biggest ball of ache known to mankind. 

But all was good!!

(sometimes I forget that I cycle or walk 6 miles a day, 5 days a week, I am healthier than I think I am)

I decided on an early start so I could take my time and dawdle to my hearts content. I had had a fairly early night in the grand scheme of things so had plenty of sleep. The camp bed is such a cozy thing it was hard to get out.

I shuffled out of the campsite at 7:30 with just my backpack on my back.

Leaving the tent and my things behind. 

It was such an odd feeling just up and walking out – I felt like I had forgotten to do something. 

But magic was about to happen….

My tent was magically going to transport itself 14 miles down the coast!

I just had to walk it – and not get lost doing so.

But I am getting ahead of myself.

Wild Longings – Curious Productions

Currently my life revolves around rhododendrons and a stubborn handkerchief tree. So what better way to kick off my 2019 Norfolk and Norwich Festival season by going to see an immersive piece of theatre to do with horticulture.

Plants. My life revolves around plants.

Although to be honest I cant exactly complain. Wild Longings was a moving promenade piece ending in a hilarious musical pun filled picnic.

Ben Folds and A Piano

I was first introduced to Ben Folds in 2008, when the sound technician at the theatre I worked at used the Ben Folds Five as sound check music. By the end of the week I had to ask him what was playing and it was instantly added to my very small iTunes library- which at the time mainly consisted of show tunes and 80s rock! (I did discover that I knew a fair few of their songs already though)
