A Postcard From Caister on Sea, Norfolk - 6th May 2019

We need a new awning for the van, so head over to Norwich Camping and Leisure in Blofield, east of Norwich, to see what they've got in stock. Afterwards, as we're in the general direction of the east Norfolk coast, we decide to try out Caister on Sea. It's a bit wet, but we find an excellent fish and chip shop, and then spend some time poking around at the Caister Lifeboat - an unusually-independent lifeboat, which is privately funded
