Today we go to Holkham beach...

Please let me take you on a walk on the wonderful Holkham beach....i have wanted to go to holkham since i saw a painting of it by one of my favourite artists.
Dawn had been lucky enough to photograph the beach on a glorious sunny day,which wasnt quite the case when we went saturday...but this dosent bother us as we always think the coastline looks beautiful no matter what the weather...we like to see the changing moods.
Well when we went saturday there was a thick sea mist,you could only just see a short distance in front of you..Holkham beach is so vast...the sea is in the distance when you first get on the beach,we could'nt even see the sea until we got up close.

The beach streches over four miles of white gold sand with wonderful dunes & reeds which i love.
The film 'shakespeare in love' was filmed here on the beach...
I just love walking through the dunes with the sounds of the sea in the distance...

Even though there were plenty of people out for their saturday stroll they seemed miles didnt come face to face with anyone just saw their silhouttes in the distance. Lovely just how i like it!!

I love this picture of this couple who were clearly 'loved up'...walking hand in hand by the shore...
Aha the was definatly worth the wait....

The sandy pools on the beach were a glorious colour of oranges & golds...

The view through the reads....this would make a lovely painting..uummmm!!

Mr h & love of my life amongst the dunes....

Can you see the people the other side of the water through the mist?

Time for a cuddle...

Weathered by the sea...

We decided to pop back again on monday on our way too Burnham today there was no mist but guess what there was snow!!

It was quite magical walikng on a beautiful beach on a beautiful coastline in the snow....

The snow was catching on the loose fluffy sand...

Wait for me dad i only have little legs!!

Love of my life likes to leave his mark....ickle paw prints..x

Now this last picture i found on the internet to give you a idea of what it looks like on a fine day...isnt it just stunning?
I cant wait to go back again...if you put in holkham beach norfolk you will be able to find plenty of information & pictures about it.
Hope you enjoyed your time i will take you to 'cley-next-the-sea'.
Bye for now. xx


  1. Cor - that was a long walk, I'm shattered now - worth it for those views though LOL x

  2. Hello Heidi

    Once again, a feast of photographs - you have a real eye for a good photograph and managed to convey that sense of lonely calm with your pictures of that magnificent expanse of shore. Ive been lucky enough to be on that beach on a sunny day, yet its beautiful in all its misty and evocative foggy glory too!

    Love to you
    Julia x x x

  3. Oooh, weren't you hardy - we usually try to time our visits to coincide with some sunny weather! Your misty photos are very evocative. We stayed at the Victoria Hotel there once ... but we were a bit disappointed, sadly.

  4. I always love looking at your photos, I love misty beaches. So atmospheric. X
