Norfolk... is a long way away from anywhere, and if I were you, I shouldn't start from here. By the time you get to the outskirts of Cromer, any distinctions between science, beachcombing, social commentary, writing and animal husbandry have started to blur. When the process is complete, you know you've arrived at the End Of The Pier Show. So, welcome. Find somewhere to park your unicycle. Pull up a
girrafechair. Make yourself comfortable.

It is said that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Last night’s three pints of Adnam’s Old Ale didn’t finish me off – and neither did this morning’s hangover cure, a restorative and somewhat exfoliative march along the beach. … Continue reading

Meanwhile, over at The Gulf Stream, Kristi Vogel talks about re-planting a Lantana horrida in her garden in San Antonio, Texas, the more to achieve a native ‘xeriscape’ – in keeping with the environs and, hopefully, easier to maintain than … Continue reading
