The wind blew..

...but the turbines didn't turn.

Wondered why they were all stationary when I passed them today. Pickenham 20th/acres stayed powered up, though.

Pickenham 20th/acres, to be precise.

Recommended Rural Retreats

Congratulations to all the Norfolk beaches that manage to gain MCS Recommended status in the 2010 Marine Conservation Society Beach Guide. Joining the earlier accolade of having the best beach in Britain, Norfolk beaches are indeed special. The winds can be a little bracing, at times, so don't forget the wind break.

The sand is so fine at Holkham you will be sweeping it up at home for the coming week, however careful you are to brush everything down. I find dogs especially good at storing sand for many a day following a romp on the beach. But it could be worse, a massive sand storm in the village of Golmud, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of China, is a much more imposing prospect!
