Late yesterday afternoon we set off towards the Overstrand playground, but instead, we thought we’d check out Mundesley Beach as I was told there was a nice playground over there. Apart from this one tiny patch of grass with a RNLI station and a memorial dedicated to those who lost their lives while attempting to clean up the bombs… we didn’t venture into the town at all. Those there is a store called Anna?? and I’ve been wanting to go there to get a SeaSalt Burlap Bag. Such cute designs – next time!
We have never stopped to explore the town and we didn’t go into the village but popped down to the beach, which is great and we’ll be going there again. In fact, the parking is so close to the beach, it’s a great place to bring a picnic or small evening portable BBQ, as you don’t have to walk a huge distance.
I think Maebh looks like Charlie from Charlie & Lola here – 🙂
We never found the playground but did find a pub called The Ship Inn. It was just up on the cliff with a small kids play area and picnic tables, so we got a pint and hung out there for an hour or so before heading home for dinner.
When we were there, we say some paragliders flying above us so that was an added bonus. Both Nils & I would love to do this….but I think I’d probably like to do it tandem with an instructor for a few times – probably have to anyways. There are so many videos on youtube.com from people who have glided from the area. This is one from Cromer to Mundesley… amazing views.
