We sat in the cafe and watched the grains of sand falling through the egg timer. Never before have I waited for my tea to brew in this way. Tea time ticking slowly past. Perhaps all tea making should be like this? As long as it includes a large slice of lemon drizzle cake I don’t see why not!
Just up the coast from us in the village of Winterton a couple have set up a cafe joined to a post office. It’s a revamped post office but a new cafe – both within the same building. They have made a super job of this and I can highly recommend a visit.
The link below gives much more detail and photos of the inside.
As usual I couldn’t resist taking a few photos myself. I had minutes to spare and just for once wasn’t running to catch up with Tim which is what usually happens when I stop to take photos.
Table decoration – crocheted flowers were a lovely touch.
The prices seem very reasonable too which is always a bonus. The comfy chairs by the fireplace will be lovely and cosy in the winter.
Here’s how it looks from the outside. For local readers and possible visitors who are wondering where it is.. The cobble and brick front is the cafe, the whitewash brick is the post office. It’s just along from the fish & chip shop which is also a favourite of ours.
Unfortunately I left the camera on macro mode so it’s slightly blurry.
Turning around – this is the view of The Loke. Nice soft focus with the macro still left on!
So, I mentioned dark clouds in the title of this post. Once out of the cafe we headed for the beach. It’s a two minute walk from here.
The Dune Cafe with car park and old Fishermans huts are all threatened by stormy seas as is most of our sandy coastline. Fairly recently large rectangular blocks have been placed at the foot of the dune just below the cafe. I’m not sure whether this will help. Let’s hope so.
The photo below shows one of the Fishermans huts oh so close to the cliff edge. The car park is just in front of it.
Five minutes later we looked back. We were stood in sunshine but it looked a bit stormy south of Winterton – towards Scraty and Caister and Great Yarmouth.
By the way, you can just see some people stood at the edge of the sea in the photo below. They had been flying a drone and it crashed into the sea. Bye bye drone…..
We did this walk last weekend. We had two heavy showers. Today it hasn’t stopped raining and flooding has happened across the county….not so lovely out.
