New Years Eve – Blickling

New Years Eve 2020, a cold but gloriously sunny day at Blickling! Walking the grounds felt a million miles from all the worry and sadness that this year has brought. Nature at its winter best with frost decorating hedges and trees and crisp underfoot, rather than muddy ground. The Tower is a holiday let now but in bygone days it saw guests sipping champagne while they watched the horse racing from the crenellated balcony. The race course has long disappeared but the building shone in the winter light. The lake looked a picture and was frozen in parts, making it difficult for the odd hardy fisherman! A welcome coffee and bacon bap beckoned at the end of our walk! Our county has beauty in varying ways, be it seaside, countryside or the Broads. Let us enjoy it — safely– in 2021. – Jean.
