A 20-minute stroll along the seafront in Cromer makes my day
People often tell me how lucky I am to be working in such a beautiful area.
But it’s not that often that I get to enjoy the privilege.
Walking along the seafront in Cromer is the highlight for many tourists and locals alike.
And it never fails to amaze me how quickly the weather can change. One minute you are marvelling at the bright sunshine and blue skies, the next it’s cloudy and dark.
Whatever the weather there’s always plenty of sites to enjoy.
Try starting at the Runton Road car park where there’s a great view of the caravans perched on a hill in the distance.
Then, if you look out to sea, there’s sure to be a boat or ship on the horizon.
The walk from the car park by the seafront is one of the most used by tourists heading to the town centre.
And while Cromer beach may have too many rocks and stones to be the most comfortable, the constant lapping of the waves is a peaceful joy.
It’s especially pleasant when it’s fairly quiet and you don’t have anyone invading your space.
And as you walk by the putting green, there always seems to be some happy family enjoying a game.
While you are playing, why not take a look over the road and marvel at the Cliftonville hotel? I bet some of the hotel rooms could tell a tale.
And then back to the walk and in the distance you can enjoy the view of Cromer pier and the town centre.
It took me about 20 minutes to do the walk, but it was refreshing and set me up well for the rest of the day.
I’ll definitely try and make it more of a daily occurrence in the future.
The sea air is a definite pick-me-up, but you probably knew that already.
