Thurne Staith Windpumps 12th sept 2013 Norfolk Holiday

After yesterdays beach day in the wind, a much calmer sunnier day is promised, we are going to see the windpumps at Thurne .its only a couple miles away but on the way we stop to shoot this image :)

Arriving at the small village of Thurne , its clouded over a bit but plenty of blue sky all around.  we park in the pub car park and walk down the right hand side of the staith towards the white painted Thurne Dyke mill.

The darkening clouds are helping with the images , but i think black & white might look better, so shoot a few to see how they look.

                   I prefer this one over the colour , and having both windmills in the frame also. Just!

                                                                 a panorama version

We have walked far enough, the suns position making images hard, so shooting from the opposite direction will be much better. on the way back the blue sky has come back, so a nice image with an interesting sky :)

 We have walked back to the Staith and around the boats to walk down the river towards the other Windmill , but first we go for a drink in the pub :)

 i shoot this image with the long lens from a distance 

                                            and a close up of the first windpumps sails

       There is a good path to walk all right along the river towards another Staith further up river.

walking carefully out onto a very weak looking mooring to look down the river, what a great view:)

                                          Yes Chester!   that is Deep water   lol

We have come to the end of the path where another Staith/Mooring ends at the river, we will turn back now and go back to the car.

                                                                Mollster is posing   yay :)

back to the small village and we have ice creme at the small corner shop , and yes both dogs finished off the tubs :)

On our way back we decide to stop of next to the bridge near Potter Heigham  where we are now walking along the river Thurne again in glorious sunshine :)        we have just passed this wonderfull old mill  when........................

A largish boat, the main one in this image turned around in front of us,slowly!  the second boat caught up with it, steered hard left to avoid hitting it and the main boom swung out and hit a moored boat right next to us, a lady inside the boat ran up onto the deck and shouted to her husband " we just got hit!!!!!!!! "    he was at the front of the boat on the bank and just shrugged his shoulders and muttered something :)   so funny :D

                                     Look at this stunning house , so much character :)

                     i have just spotted this Grey Heron in the field , managed this image :)

                                           The beautiful bridge over the river Thurne  :)

                                              the evening continues in next blog post :)
