We took refuge from the stifling weather last week by nipping down to Hunstanton for a couple of hours.

We would have stayed longer but we didn't have the right change for the pay and display.

They seem to be able to employ plenty of people to check the tickets in the windscreens, but can't employ just a few to take the money at the entrance.

After we'd looked at the cliffs and the funfair we decided to try to find some shade in the grounds at Sandringham.

Very pleasant it was too, lakes, rolling lawns and lots of trees.

The last part of our route was the Woodland Walk which meandered among mature hardwoods and bushes.

More often than not we were dipping and bending to avoid low branches. Just like home, really.

If you walk along Fordham Road where it backs on to Red House Gardens you could be visiting the Queen all over again.

Perhaps that's why nothing has been done about the state of the hedge there - the council members are all royalists.
