Showing friends & Family around Sheringham, North Norfolk, UK

Today, we met up with my sister in law and her family, along with her friend who is visiting from the Netherlands, her partner and their newborn baby, to show them around the Sheringham seafront.   Hopefully they’ll get a chance to enjoy Cromer too.

Kids and adults were all perplexed as to why there was a scarecrow at the beach.

Of course, one of my favorite part of the seafront are the beach huts.  I think they add so much charm to the British seaside.  A nice old couple were sitting outside and their hut was so cutely decorated – so much like how I’d decorate it if I had one.  I asked if  I could take a photo and eagerly they agreed.  It probably appeared we were very much tourists – guess the American accent and tall crew with me speaking some guttural language added to that.  Once our kids start talking with a bit of a British accent, they were really confused.  🙂
As usual, so many of them were closed and not in use – which is a shame as I think having some set aside for even day rentals would be a good idea.  I think some families would like the nostalgia of having one for the day during your vacation – especially if it had beach toys and some chairs inside.
We stopped off at the Beach Hut Cafe to get the kids some ice cream.
Maebh was excited she could ride on Archie’s buggy.  Honestly, it really made her day.

Once the kids had their ice creams, the adults wanted to have a pint up at The Crown.  But as we were turning the corner we came across a really, really cool thing which was part of the Sheringham Carnival.  It was a “parent propelled carousel” which kids could go on for a donation they did.  Nils luckily for the rest of us was the person who span in for a bit while being chased by pirates.   Soren wore a sailor’s hat but didn’t want to put any of the other costumes on – which I was surprised by and Maebh was a mermaid – so cute!

Lucky to live at the British Seaside.  I’m sure it won’t be forever but for now it’s great!
