Thursday 13th June 2013 - Upturn in the Weather, A Pleasant Walk and Les Miserables

Since my last diary entry, there has been a definite upturn in the weather. The winds are no longer from the north and east, making it feel much warmer and the sunny spells have been most welcome.

Tuesday, we decided to walk inland up to Hungry Hill and then on past the Shrieking Pit. Keeping to paths, as far as possible, we continued coming back to cross the coast road on the outskirts of Trimingham and from here, followed a field path to the cliff top and back to Overstrand. Walking at Barney’s pace, with plenty of stops for him to sniff, this took us around two and a half hours. We enjoyed the tranquillity and throughout we did not pass another soul out walking. I will leave the photographs in the slideshow below to expand on our walk. Back in Overstrand we took advantage of the White Horse’s offer of a ‘two for one lunch’ before heading home.

We decided to round the day off with the film Les Miserables, showing for one night only at the Coronation Hall in Mundesley. Unfortunately we found the film depressing and considering the number of nominations and awards it received; not at all what we expected. It seemed pointless to stay to the end, when we were not enjoying the film, so we made a discreet exit after just over an hour. By coincidence an earlier non-musical version of Les Miserables starring Liam Neeson and Geoffrey Rush was broadcast on the TV the same evening. We recorded this to watch on Wednesday and found it a far more palatable version. Mundesley Coronation Hall Film Club shows a different film on the second Tuesday of each month and information about the Club and scheduled films can be found on the Mundesley village website
