Waterfront Property, Dirt Cheap


To celebrate his car purchase and also to get some camping in before the brief English summer vanishes into the drizzle of autumn, the bloke and I went on a camping trip to the flat broad marshlands of north Norfolk this weekend. He kindly loaned me his little point-and-shoot Canon so I could satisfy my shutterbug instincts without burning through a load of medium format film. We ate fresh fish, drank the local swill (the charmingly named and distinctly indigestible Old Les), hiked for miles along the coast and, of course, got rained on. Brilliant!

Burnham Deepdale is between Brancaster Staithe and Burnham Norton, in case you were in need of further geographical clarification.

It's quite a special place, I feel. I love the muted greens and greys and browns - I prefer it when it's overcast, actually, as it accentuates the expansiveness of the views.

Yes, it has a distinctive character, doesn't it? If you go, consider staying at Burnham Deepdale. In addition to the campgrounds, it also has a very nice inexpensive backpackers hostel.

Hostel ftw. I am definitely not a campground kind of girl ! Which reminds me that I need to book Munich ASAP.

I was going to ask you about the temperature (I tend to associate sights like the topmost with sweltering days and hundred-percent humidity in the Everglades). Then I remembered- the internets.

The magical mystical internets! Over the weekend, it was quite warm and muggy in the mornings and then got cooler and even more humid/showery in the afternoons.
