Wild Horses

A little bird told me that the Household Cavalry were in Norfolk and for the next couple of days they may be exercising the horses at Holkham Beach.
It meant getting up early (before 6am) and I was parked up by 7.30 and walked down to the beach. Fortunately the heavy storms of the night before had gone, and it was just breezy with a hint that it might turn into a sunny day.
After about 30 minute's patient anticipation, they appeared through the dunes
and made their way onto the beach

They lined up for a bit of a photoshoot
Although it was clearly a bit too early for some of them
He definite LOOKS to be asleep
Then after a quick canter along the water's edge ...
they were in!
Some even went swimming out of their depth!
A fabulous sight, and well worth getting up early (and wet feet!) for.  

And for all those of you who aren't lucky enough to live in Norfolk - watch this video, its truly spectacular.
(There may be a random ad at the start, but the video IS worth it)

  1. The things you'll do to see some men in uniform! Have to agree... fabulous sight though.

  2. I really enjoyed this post, and the previous one about your pattern haul. I just wanted to drop you a line to say that I was using your needle book today and I thought of you. I am finally back to doing some serious sewing, enjoying the joys of living away from London, spending time with the little kids and feeling an affinity with you.
