I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite pix from my research trip in north Norfolk last year, as the book I was conducting research for was A Summer to Remember – and, wow, it’s now almost time for the book to come out!
Top left is the gateway of All Saints Church, Thornham. I stayed at a nearby pub, The Orange Tree, and enjoyed wandering around the village. Nelson’s Bar, in A Summer to Remember, is situated between Thornham and Titchwell. I pushed them aside a little and created a headland that juts out in the salt marshes and put Nelson’s Bar on top of that.
Top centre and bottom right are shots of the vibrant seaside resort of Hunstanton, the nearest big town to Nelson’s Bar.
Top right and left centre are from Brancaster Staithe where there’s a sailing club. I had fun watching all the activity without feeling the actual urge to go out on the water myself.
Bottom centre is part of a footpath in the salt marshes near Thornham. I loved the salt marshes. Some of the grasses were taller than I am so I didn’t venture down those paths even though, to my surprise, I got a great mobile phone signal on the salt marshes! As Nelson’s Bar does not have a good mobile signal and only scant broadband, checking my phone for signal was a constant preoccupation of the trip.
I hope you like the pix. There are probably a hundred more but I just picked out a few.
A Summer to Remember will be published in paperback, ebook and audio on 2 May 2019.
