Well its been years and years since I did the first section of the Weavers Way and I am going to finish the whole walk this year starting today! I got a lift down to Acle Bridge which is where we finished up last time and walked to Stalham. The next section will be shorter at about 16km which leaves the most interesting part to Cromer for a 4th day.

The River Bure from the top of Acle Bridge looking in the direction I will be walking. My path is the one on the right past the boats. You can see a couple walking along there at the moment.

This is known as the Helter Skelter House.

Rush Hill - a part of Hickling Broad. This was taken from the Bird Hide along this part of the path and a perfect stop for lunch.

This sign marked the most boring section of todays walk which was approx 3.25 miles of road walking. I suppose it had to come sooner or later - I did manage to get this far with only about 100m on road and the rest on footpaths...
