As much as we like Norfolk it has yet again told me I shouldn’t be here. 
Yesterday management was taken I’ll on a walk and we had to resort to bussing it back. To be honest we had planned the walk to fit in with buses if needed.
Last night the weather changed. Every night it has rained but last night was torrential. This morning it’s blowing a mighty gale. Of coarse we are on top of a hill side on to the sea. The only free pitch when we arrived but now most people with any sense have left. 
This is third time this has happened this year in Norfolk starting with storm Dennis on my birthday in February. 
I don’t really want to pack up and drive back unless it’s gets silly because we have a long drive on a very exposed embankment from Kings Lyn to Boston and then the open fields to Coningsby. Oh not forgetting over the Wolds as well. rainyday.Muttly is the only sensible one between us .He has stayed at home. With his wonky legs the walks are too much for him now..

Beautiful in Central Scotland again.    Passed through Callander yesterday on way to Glen Ogle..... it was very scenic but got caught in one shower on the way back down Glen Ogle.    We parked in Lochearnhead and joined the line there.    The original access via the Scout Station as mentioned in many of the Route websites is still there but very rough and steep.   The new access according to the signposts (route7) is via a steep tarmac lane from the main road just at the south (Callander) end of the village.   Heavy going but once on the track, an easy cycle of about three miles to the summit of Glen Ogle..... the track is a mix of tarmac and good smooth hard standing.     The route continues to Killin, Kenmore and Aberfeldy to the east, or Lix Toll to Crianlarich and Tyndrum to the west.    Visited the memorial at the summit of Glen Ogle  ... two airmen crashed their Tornado there in 1994.... misjudged height after coming up the glen and clipped the ground just on the summit.    Amazing how the landscape/tree growth changes in 26 years..... I was involved in the incident in a professional capacity and it was quite hard to imagine the scene as it is now.

We have made it as far as the A17 Kings Lyn. It has taken nearly three hours. I think all the sites in Norfolk have emptied en mass this morning. Spot of lunch before we tackle the next bit. 
I am already plotting were to go next. think_smiley_46rainyday

I remember the steep climb to get on top of the path at Lochearnhead. I'm fascinated by old railway lines so wanted to see the old station, now scout accommodation, and the viaduct that would have taken trains to Comrie. What a train journey that would have been!  We walked up to the top of the hill, across the road and back down by a path on the other side.

Heavy. Heavy rain Stottin of the rear patio doors, gales up to 53 mpg on our wee weather station.
Great photos Tony, imagine the train run from Lix toll through Killin and along Loch Tay, my in laws who lived in Killin (now dead) remember the trains.

Been here on and off since 1973, this is far and away the worst I've ever seen, as bad as anywhere actually.
Neighbour has a rain gauge, can't wait to see what it says!
Should prove the water proofness of the PVC tho! (I hope!)

Well we got back ok. We didn’t see any point staying for another night. There’s not as much to do during bad weather with a lot of National Trust and English Heritage places only opening there grounds. We managed one and a half days walking without getting wet so that was good.
We left Cromer at 9.30 and got home at 4 pm. The traffic from Cromer to the A17-A16 split south of Boston was horrific. Not sure if it was due to the weather but it was stop start all the way. North of Boston the wind got worse with torrential rain until nearly home. 
Normally we would have come back via Coningsby but that stretch of road is open fields for miles and not a very wide road to share with trucks and tractors. 
When we got back muttly wouldn’t go up the garden. He stood on the decking in the wind and glared at me. Turning round to come back in he fell over and needed hoisting back up. Strong wind vers wonky legs isn’t a good combination.

Just managed out with Tag in between heavy rain dumps.  Gales still up at 50+ mph.
The wind has started to rip the roofing felt of sheds in neighbouring gardens  tree branches down on minor roads lots of flooding too.

We’re at Ludham Bridge and there hasn’t been so much as a 5 minute break from very strong gusty winds with heavy rain since it started last night. We had a short power cut this morning and its just come back after almost 3 hours off this evening.

Could be worse...we could be in one of the flat- bottomed plastic Broads cruisers and trying to get back to base at the end of hire period. 

Same again for tomorrow. Forecast from home today has been calm, mild and sunny.

Guess it's the luck of the draw, we've got clear blue skies again and no wind. Pretty cool though with frost forecast for some bits of Scitland. Suppose I'll need to check the frost control on the van shrugg

As you say, Tony,....we've been so lucky with the weather.   Took almost identical photos when in Glen Ogle.    I remember using the railway....I was working in Stirling (1963) and took the train journey home to Argyll (Oban Station) On Friday evenings.....great memories.

Came back from North Norfolk Tuesday, so missed the storm, it was very warm when we were there, going again shortly, property hunting, trouble is lots of Londoners are buying up for second homes, so competition for locals and those like us who want to live there permanently, We have family who live there. Grandson owns Norfolk Boats and is doing very well. Can`t wait to move there, should have done so years ago.

Sand was everywhere after the storm at Bacton and Walcott, due to the sandscaping. so they are saying. 

Take care everyone and keep safe, this virus is not going away.anytime soon if at all.
