Brancaster Staithe, Norfolk, photos

I'm staying with my younger daughter for a few days. Today we went to Brancaster Staithe, a salt marsh harbour on the North Norfolk coast.

This is the view from the Common, up the hill above the village - you see the complex layout of channels from there - the sea is only accessible to boats when the tide is high.

We've been lucky and the weather has been gorgeous :>)

Back with paintings in a few days :>)

There is something about salt marshes and Norfolk's Broads that draws me in. Often, cold, wet, windy(and smelly!)...it has a fascinating pull to older times.
Thanks for the memory! :-)

they aren't wild and untamed like Cornwall but they have a charm of their own don't they?

This is north Norfolk - just round the corner from The Wash, so a bit different from the Broads area, which I don't know so well. I always wanted to do a boating holiday there but himself never wanted to.

Looks like some wonderful sketching opportunities, Vivien. Goodness one be at the mercy of the tides there though.

I look forward to your paintings. Enjoy your break!

I don't know the area at all but everyone who speaks about it does so with a lot of love, it makes me think I should visit :-)

Lovely photos!

Nicki it has a quality of its own - but you live in such a beautiful place that it isn't worth the journey for you I have to admit!

I'd love to get up to Scotland again - I love the far north west
