Postcards from Cromer

Cromer Pier, Norfolk

In all the years I’ve been visiting Norfolk I’ve never been to Cromer.  So I took the opportunity to visit on our recent short break. It is clear that Cromer is more of a traditional type of seaside town, but it housed a few gems. We with Katy, from Fabulous Food Finds, for lunch.  I had […]

Enriching Your Life

My Weekly Finds No.10
