After yesterday my feet were a tad sore, but walkable! So instead of cracking on with the walk we decided to spend 2 hours in the tank museum next to the campsite! The tank museam is a really good place, and a lot better tahn we expected. Plenty of exibits and big tanks and a nice cafe for breakfast. With our running trend of being lucky with the weather, we avoided a torential downpour that thundered on the roof.
As we set off it was lightly raining but nothing to bad, in fact the waterproofs were off after a mile. The walk started back on the shingle for a very short distance before a steady climb up and along the cliffs. The coastal erosion is readily apparent and in contrast to the well defended coast a few miles back.
The cliffs offer great views back along the coast and swift progress was made. The few hills along this section stand out dramatically due to the general nature of the Norfolk landscape. Great views can be seen from the coastwatcher look out point on ... If it hadn't been so windy it might of been a good place for a break.
Dropping into Sherringham the weather again turned with a heavy shower drenching the town. Luckily we was walking past an empty shelter on the prom as it started. I told you we was lucky with the weather! Sherringham was the biggest town on our walk (apart from Cromer) and was fairly busy with tourists, all hiding under any awning or alley way they could find. Still munching on chips and ice creams mind you!

We decided to put up the tents and then finish the walk. Partly so we could have a few drinks in Cromer, without being in a rush to get back to the campsite, and also so we could dump the rucksacks. A short lane lead into a housing estate and from this point the coast path followed the roads into Cromer.
