Camping on the Coast, East Runton, North Norfolk - 25th July 2020

The van is out for a proper trip up to the coast of North Norfolk, and the Manor Farm camp site we'd been to a few years before. Social distancing means that the site is nominally only 50% full, which is about right and at least means that there are actually free showers in the morning. We're there with Allyson, Lydia and Benson, so the boys also have someone to hang out with. Once there, we variously cycle, walk or run into Cromer, East and West Runton, the latter being where Fred had recently been on his Aylmerton school residential, and where he was keen to repeat his quest for Balmonite fossils
