Holkham Nature Reserve & Holkham Beach

Today we took advantage of the amazing weather and low tide on a Sunday and headed over to Holkham Nature Reserve & Beach   We were not the most prepared with our Wellies, but we had a great time anyway.  Another reason why we must buy four pairs and leave them in the trunk of our car.

The beach at Holkham is one of the most unspoiled and beautiful stretches of sand in England. They have several beach walks and it is just gorgeous    It is the beach in which actress Gwyneth Paltrow walked across during low tide in the closing scenes of the film ‘Shakspear in Love’.   Just opposite the beach is the Holkham Estate  – which to me is like Crane Estate on steroids.  Take a few minutes to look over the links to see how unreal it is.

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
