This view of a Broad in Norfolk, was taken from the tower of St Helen Church, Ranworth. It is quite a remarkable church, and it is definitely worth a visit whether one is a tourist or visits to participate in gathered Christian worship. And if a personal visit is not possible then check out this website. It is recommended. I am sure you will be surprised!

There is such bright greenery in England, that in a gloomy day turns out very bright picture! I like this place, dear Yan! Best wishes. Eva

It almost looks like a maze with all the pathways going here and there. R

Dear Eva,

The Broads of Norfolk are shallow lakes amongst extensive areas of marsh, and connected by channels. We enjoyed it, Eva, and I know you would also. It is a favourite place for all sorts of boaties and birdwatchers. Many places to walk, to drive and to just sit and eat, chat or paint make it a beautiful recreational landscape.

Thanks for the best wishes, too, dear Eva. Yan

And Robyn, I thought it was rather like a scrapbook. You'll probably enjoy the map beside the photo too. No news yet from your Brisbane! Just can't wait to hear whether you have a new niece or a nephew.

Love, Dad

I was here exactly 8 days ago, Ian. It was a very misty view from the tower, but good enough to see 3 windmills - almost invisible in the distance. Quite a climb though! I was by myself, and found it difficult to open the top hatch. :)

I'm now going to check out your Sea Palling Holiday.

Warm wishes, Amelia

Dear Amelia,

In one of my books -it was a geography text on Urban Geography I invited a British friend to contribute a case study on Yarmouth. I was fascinated by the city's history and became interested in the Broads. The next time we were in Britain we took the opportunity to explore Yarmouth and the Broads. Loved it all!

And pleased that you have been there and that we share a little more in common.I noticed that the Sea Palling link has changed considerably since I made the link, but then it included images and stories on the Broads. We stayed with a precious friend in Norwich... another special city!
