Phoenix Lives

My previous post, The Force of Nature, highlighted the effects of the December tidal surge on the North Norfolk Coast. Since then, the South West of England experienced their own devastation and then British generosity came to the fore in the West and East.
Battered and gorged of their contents, the West Beach huts are almost ready, for the bathing visitors

We returned to Cromer to see the strong and steady transformation back to this nearly and newly repaired seaside destination - that is so dependent on the influx of visitors, for its livelihood.

A calm has returned to the battered and annihilated Victorian promenade

Next weekend, starting on the 16th May, the annual Cromer and Sheringham Crab and Lobster Festival is launched. 

Beach huts on the more fashionable East Beach, are back to their former glory
It is such a privilege to be able to enjoy the hard work and originality involved in providing us all with fun and laughter, in this unique corner of England. 
Hard work, resilience and civil engineering have all played a part in the restoration
It doesn't stop with next weekend's feasting activity though. Check out the Pier (of course), the Carnival and the Fireworks on New Year's Day

But most of all, consider checking out the parts of our battered island, that will need your support this Summer season, more than ever.
