Wells-Next-To-The-Sea, Norfolk

A bright, winter day on the Norfolk Coast at Wells-Next-To-The-Sea.

The Albatross, a former Dutch cargo ship built in 1899, she is now permanently moored along side the quay here in Wells-Next-To-The-Sea as a bar, restaurant, music venue and B&B.

One of the many ducks enjoying the winter sunshine, I think this one is a female Gadwell.  It is more streamlined than the female Mallard duck and has a smaller, squarer head and it doesn't have the blue hind wing of a Mallard. It's beak is dark with an orange edge.

Crab and lobster pots sitting on the quay waiting to be loaded on to a fishing boat.

I thought I was being watched, not expecting to see these colourful characters peering down at me.

The local butcher has quite a selection of Partridges and Pheasant's waiting for customers.

It seems quite strange to see a pub named The Edinburgh Inn, here in Norfolk.

Here we are walking down the main shopping street, with lots of small, boutique, gift shops, with cafes and restaurants scattered between.

Love the sign hanging from this seat outside 'Mine' I bet that gets used quite a bit.

There's that colourful dragon again, spying on the visitors.
