Armed with a hip flask of Talisker, we set out into the weather from Burnham Overy Staithe, across the dunes of Gun Hill and toward the seaward entrance of the River Burn.  Buffeted by the wind as we crossed the marshes, it reached fever pitch as we turned and walked downwind towards Holkham and Wells-Next-The-Sea.

Finally, with the wind cutting through our clothing and chilling us to the bone, we stopped mid-beach for a good slug of whisky and a birthday Eccles Cake.  The sand was rushing fast towards the sea as it blew, half-dried and stinging our ankles, across the beach as I took this photo.

With not another soul to be seen for the entire walk, and now with a newly acquired set of rather smelly sea shells, we made it to the comfort of the Holkham pinewood, whereupon the heavens opened and we decided that, as we caught the bus home, Honour was satisfied. Lucky her.
