Ride Out to see the Snowdrops

A full bus set off on a sunny afternoon to see the snowdrops at Walsingham Abbey. We timed it just right this year and there was a stunning display visible from the bus. We then took the back roads to Wells quay crossing the river ford which was low but still slightly nervewracking! The sea mist was quite in evidence at Wells but the quay was virtually empty so we got a good spot to look out from and the ducks obliged with a flypast. Back to Fakenham and sunshine, along the dry road.

Trees get Trimmed

The beech trees have had a trim and had the branches braced. It was quite a spectacle wathcing the tree surgeons climbing about.

Chinese New Year

This is the year of the rabbit! Donna brought in some Chinese snacks and chopsticks for everyone to try. Gordon was quite an expert. Looking at everyone's Chinese horoscopes was fun, discovering who was what animal and we then had chinese stir with sweet chilli sauce for lunch.

Marmalade Time

It's that time of year again with the bittersweet smell of marmalade oranges being cut up permeating Albany House.
