12th – 14th June

A thoroughly enjoyable motorcycling trip around the coast of East Anglia.

The trip started by a stopover in Guildford to get recall and an MOT on “the machine”.

Once done, on the Friday afternoon, it was a ride from Guildford to Dunwich on the Suffolk Coast around the M25, under the Thames at Dartford and then heading through Essex to Manningtree from where the roads got more interesting taking in Woodbridge, Tunstall, Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Leiston and a nice ride via the Minsmere RSPB Reserve to Dunwich.

Saturday took in Southwold, Kessingland, Lowestoft, Great Yarmouth, Winterton-on-Sea, Horsey (with its windmill), Sea Palling, Eccles-on-Sea, Happisburgh, Bacton, Mundesley, Cromer, Sheringham, Cley-Next-The-Sea and Blakeney for an overnight stay.

Homeward bound via Stiffkey, Wells-Next-The-Sea, Burham Market, Brancaster, Hunstanton, Heacham, Snettisham, Sandringham, Swaffham, Mundford, Thetford Forest, Brandon, Lakenheath, the Fens, Cambridge, the Lodge at Sandy and cross country back to Wiltshire.

A few detours in Norfolk to a couple of Nature Reserves added to the mileage.

A very memorable weekend.

Also article writing en route with my laptop.
