Lambs Ride Out




We took the bus to see the lambs at Lin and John O'Dell's farm at Tattersett. Mary (carer) came with us. She had helped the O'Dells with lambing in a previous year and so was able to help Lin bring some lambs into the bus for us to cuddle. Pip the sheepdog came too to keep an eye on her charges.

We had intended to have a potter about the country lanes on the way home but someone suggested we go to Hunstanton and the vote was fairly unanimous (sorry Olive!). It was a bright and very breezy day and the wind was blowing clouds of dust across the road which somehow made it a bit more of an adventure. We parked right on the front at Hunstanton and it was deserted. The tide was high with the waves crashing in and the sun was reflecting off the water and I think Dick summed it up when he said ' It makes you glad to be alive'. The only slight downswide was the ice cream kiosk was closed.....
