A day out

What lovely weather we have been having, I didn't think hubby and I would be enjoying a such a hot ride out during the first weekend of October.

Our transport for the day
We rode out to Denver Windmill  which is in North West Norfolk and on the edge of the Fens.

We crossed the bridges at Denver Sluice on the River Great Ouse, where huge sluice gates control the water levels across the fens. Without these great gates the high tides would flood the low lying areas.

View from the bridge

We enjoyed a traditional Sunday Roast sitting in the garden overlooking the river at the The Jenyns Arms

On our way home we passed a lovely cottage that was up for sale.....

The garden is full of lavender plants, perfect for drying and using for Lavender bags and Pillows.

It's very picturesque but I don't think we will be putting in an offer.

We had a wonderful day out and I'm now fully refreshed and ready to continue my crafting.

Take care

    That house looks idyllic! Bit far for hubby to commute to Kent though in the taxi!
