A weekend away in Norfolk seemed just the answer. Life has been hectic and we needed a break. So, off we go - we took Harvey the RV up to Norfolk. Lovely site, no major problems - after all, we are only still adjusting to life with a protable bedsit. The weather wasn't the best but we can cope with that.
We had to travel at one point to the nearest town, Holt. On the way past I noticed a rather bizarre sight. An entrance up a small track had two posts on either side of its entrance. The posts were branches, each with a either a crow or a jackdaw nailed to them - they looked stuffed. One had a garland of cow parsley wrapped around its head. Odd.
On the way back I was looking at them when a strangely decorated car drove past - I didn't fully see it but it had fins tied on and various flowers, I think. We drove past again the next day but I missed them - by the time we found them again, the wind had taken its toll. Now, we think there was a wedding on that night - probably pagan. All the same - the phrase "NFN" suggests itself. It's a term used by Social Workers and the like that means "Normal for Norfolk".
There were also lots of signs around advertising the "Scarecrow Festival" next weekend.
I enjoyed going to Norfolk for the weekend, but I must admit that it was a little Wicker Man at times, and possibly a little satanic.
