Normal for Norfolk again.
We will be viewing England's debut World Cup Game in the north Norfolk seaside town of Sheringham. Nothing fancy. A couple of nights at the Two Lifeboats Inn, crab sandwiches, a pint or three of Woodford's excellent Wherry Bitter, long walk on the coastal path. The first time that I received the hospitality of the Two Lifeboats was during a film job that was on in the locality but we returned a couple of years ago and I was pleased to see that the same cheerful scruffiness had endured. No breakfast but there was a good cafe up the road. I fear that times, and the Two Lifeboats, have changed. Now they offer "Boutique Bed and Breakfast", whatever that is. I just hope that the lady who runs the shellfish stall across the road hasn't decided to go upmarket as well.
