Weekend Away

 A weekend at Great Yarmouth filled with excitement, wonder and awe.

Written on a public toilet door.
Here is the lovely Lucy. Go on, give her a text and teach her a lesson she'll never forget!

Watching bowls on a dreary Saturday afternoon.
You cant beat penny falls on a wet day. My lovely prizes on the 2p pusher. That's the nephews Christmas present sorted.

Say it with flowers. In an Indian restaurant waiting for my dinner to arrive.
The Norwich puppet man he was doing the Macarena when I took this photo. See him in action here.

Our accommodation overlooking the Venetian gardens and boating lake.

  1. I've not traveled lately, so I especially enjoy seeing the places you and Carmen visit!

    Are "penny falls" and "2p pusher" vending machines?

    1. They're arcade machines shamelessly rigged but great fun.

    2. Can't believe that I looked at this "thing" for more than seven minutes ...

    3. Gripping stuff I was on tenterhooks the whole way through too.

  2. It all looks delightful, but I fear Lucy needs more training than I'm able to provide.

    1. She looks a handful. Perhaps boot camp with a week on jankers would sort her out.

  3. That looks like one crazy sunny afternoon in summertime in Great Yarmouth :-)
    Your accommodation looks very swanky.

    1. It was sunny for about 2hrs in the morning, then it turned overcast.

    2. I watched the puppet man.... which made me giggle in a very silly way.
      Sx

    3. I wonder if he pleasures himself using glove puppets "Oh Sweep, my true love". I put a few coins in his box and noticed he was playing cassettes!

    4. Well, at least he's enjoying himself.... and Sweep looks like he was made out of five pairs of dirty socks.

  4. Oh, so that's where the Puppet Man has got to. I didn't think I'd seen him around Norwich so much lately.

    I would have said "welcome to Norfolk" but I'm a little behind the times - much like many of Norfolks citizenry (although, possibly not Lucy...).
    It's a shame Louis Tussauds House of Wax has closed down - I'm sure you would have had a field day in there!

    1. I wrote a post about my visit to the infamous waxworks about 8 years but I can't seem to find it, I must have wrote it on Tripadvisor. Poor Princess Anne, she had a face like a melted candle. I nearly wet myself laughing at some of the frights in there, one of my friends got a bit breathless through laughing and had to use his asthma pump, well worth the entrance fee. Then later we had a ride on some giant snails. They say "If the ravens leave the Tower, the kingdom will fall" I think the same can be said about those snails at Great Yarmouth.
