I've been to Cromer many, many times in my life but I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've ever noticed these quotes embedded in the promenade: I am happy to report that I did not share the sentiment of the above quote, which apparently was a "young WInston Churchill", as I was in fact having a very nice time indeed.
Foolishly I failed to record who this quote was from, assuming I would remember...nice try! But I thought it was rather lovely anyway, and not something one could argue with.
I do like to watch happy seagulls bobbing up and down in the sea, and it does amuse me how they like to line up in a uniform fashion. Sadly by the time I'd fished through my bag to retrieve the camera two of the little tykes had flown away, as if they knew they were about to be papped.
The day was rounded off rather nicely with a pot of Earl Grey at Alby Crafts. I did admire the lovely shape of that teapot, and was most impressed by the provision of an extra jug of hot water to re-fill said pot. The tearooms were offering a good selection of cakes, but having already had both chips and a whippy at the seaside that would have been one indulgence too far so I had to give them a miss.
On a final note, I am physically unable to go anywhere and return empty handed so I did purchase some jelly beans to refuel my jelly bean jar with and here they are on some crocheted coasters (which I'll be showing off in more detail at some point), on my little pink mirror table that I made a while back.
And stumbling upon a shop that had Stylecraft dk wool at a very reasonable price I felt it necessary to replenish my stash of pinks and purples, which has taken quite a hit lately owing to my current WIP. Not too much left to do on that now though so I intend to share the results with you all shortly.
I hope everyone has had an equally lovely, sunny Saturday.
