The Last Hurrah
I've come to the end of my tour around Norfolk and wanted to finish this set of Journals with a few odds and ends. First, I wish to thank Alice, AlicesPlace for all the help and suggestions she gave me before we visited Norfolk, and for all the support by way of favourites and comments on the images and Journals. There was one suggestion that she made about the woods at Holkham, a village associated with a mighty Stately Home, Holkham Hall, near to Wells-Next-the-Sea in North Norfolk. Alice stated that there were some very odd trees in a wood near the beach at Holkam, the like of which she had never seen anywhere else. Well, that sort of comment is the proverbial red rag to the bull, so off I went to see these curious trees. Curious indeed, as the two examples here show. The woodland is mainly fir with some deciduous trees, but these two (and many more) don't look like any ordinary fir tree with these major branches that turn into subsidiary trunks.
