Yesterday's walk took place in similar conditions to December's outing: snow and ice. Only this time there was less snow and more ice. We'd gone as a group to Little Dunham in Norfolk, and walked a circular route on crunchy footpaths and slippery roads.
I like the way this puddle has cracked:
The person apparently leading the group here is actually an interloper: a local out for a walk at the same time as us.
The route took us across the dismantled Lynn and Dereham Railway (opened 1846, closed 1968).
A horrible sight awaits anyone who looks over the bridge parapet (either side).
Jan stepping carefully into Sporle:
The sun shone for most of the walk, and despite a chilly breeze, we kept warm. A lot of the time. though, we were looking down at our feet, making sure not to slip.
We saw a lot of these...
... and one of these.
The village pub had closed down, so (for us) it was back home for a soupy lunch.
