We set off early on November 20th for Thursford Christmas Spectacular,
stopping at a cafe for a quick bite to eat.
We had tickets for the afternoon show and the place was packed.
As you enter the show grounds the display of lights and little gift shops really set the mood.
|A display of wolves complete with howling amid the many different trees twinkling with lights|
|Love the displays, which looked even better when it got dark|
|Next to the restaurant a beautiful Nativity scene|
|Thursford has the largest collection of traction engines in the world|
They were all decorated for the Christmas season
|Mechanical organs stood silent as we prepared to watch the show|
|Love the sign in the loo!|
|Next day we wandered around the shops and took a look at the sea and Cromer pier.|
It was very cold and damp in the air so a nice meal was called for.
|A drive along the coast and we stopped at The Ship in Mundesley for dinner.|
We had been before and were not disappointed.
|Our ground floor studio apartment at the Country Club|
|Stable Yard and building converted into a cafe and shop|
|The walled garden was very well kept and surprising how many plants were still in flower.|
|Even the many chickens wandering about had a 'posh' residence|
|The vegetable garden with its central pond|
|In the orangery I stood in my new coat next to the dolls house|
|Felbrigg Hall, not open at the time of year.|
Back home on Friday via a visit to Colemans Warehouse to buy some fabric... a great birthday holiday.
