We set off from Boathouse Cottage at Wayford Bridge to The Dunes Cafe at Winterton Beach, having first looked up the opening hours on the internet. Without breakfast we were parched when we arrived, only to find the place locked and bolted. It was very cold, there was a strong wind.
Ideal conditions then to see a white sea for the first time. A few photographs were taken, including ones of the closed cafe should ever we return. We drove on, towards Cromer we thought, though our satnav thought otherwise.
We did find a neat tearoom, Hatters, in Cromer, lots of space, lots of tea, lots of cake. Yet Cromer had not evaded the cold cold North Wind. A quick walk through the town, then spritely back to the car, missing out on what appears to be quite a wonderful church.
Back home and the photographs of the sea brought to mind the LS Lowry painting of the north sea to mind, and thus was borne the idea for project 2 of the Home-Made PhD, but only after The Friday Morning Poets Salon had come up with the theme of Opaque.
