This challenge was hard for me, but as both me and Sarah are both registered blind, it doesn’t take much distance for things to seem infinite!!!

Our 6th Wedding Anniversary

Steve  Sarah Wedding 2

To celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary Sarah & I visited Hunstanton, Norfolk for a few days. We’ve stayed in the ‘Old Hunstanton Lighthouse‘ for our honeymoon and then each year for the next 5 anniversaries, but this year we didn’t have the time to stay for a week, so we stayed in a lovely guest house in the town instead. I didn’t take any cameras with me and only had my iPhone, but I had fun taking photos anyway! 😀

I decided with the image below, that I would combine my love of sunsets with Sarah’s love of doughnuts. It took a few attempts to get the sun in the hole, but I got it in the end! 🙂

When we arrived home after a 6 hour journey, we had an hour to get ready and go for our romantic meal at our favourite restaurant. Our friends who own and run Sicily restaurant made it extra special for us.

The Retreat at night

Description

Sarah, Bruce and I stayed in ‘The Retreat’ log cabin in Acle, Norfolk for a week in 2008.

It was a lovely relaxing holiday. I played guitar on the porch while Sarah sat in the hot tub for most of the week Bruce enjoyed long walks and pretending to be a guard dog.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape

Sarah sat in the window of the lighthouse looking out over the sea

My Thoughts 💭 

When I received this weeks challenge, I instantly thought of this photo of Sarah sat in the window of the Old Hunstanton Lighthouse, we rent the lighthouse for a week every year for our wedding annaversary and this is Sarah’s favourite seat,

Sarah works in London where it is very fast paced, crowded,  built up and very grey she looks forward to escaping the stress and relaxing by the sea.

V8 Pickup

While on holiday last year in Hunstanton, Norfolk I kept hearing a fat american V8 driving around the town, and one day it was parked up so I could snap it with my camera!

My friends dad always had american cars  and vans and I’ve enjoyed them for most of my life, so I was excited when I could finally put a picture to that beautiful sound.

As you may already know from my previous photos of “The Old Lighthouse” this is our favourite place to hire for a holiday in Norfolk.

“The Old Lighthouse is a holiday home with a difference! Built in 1666 on the cliffs of North Beach in Hunstanton, The Old Lighthouse was fully restored and converted to holiday accommodation in 1997.”

The Sun on The Cross

The Sun on the Cross  PNG

Description

At the Lighthouse last year (2012) while walking into Hunstanton along the cliff top  we spotted this cross that had been put there by surveyors and as it was only a few hundred yards from the lighthouse we thought we would try and get a nice photo whilst the sun was setting.

If it wasn’t for digital camera’s it wouldn’t be possible for me to enjoy photography and after about 50 photos later and a wait of a few days until i could get home and download the images onto my computer i was shocked to find this waiting for me. 😀

Description

This Sunset was taken from the living room in the Lighthouse we stay in every July to celebrate our wedding anniversary! I had no idea that a bird was in the shot when I took the photo, i only noticed it when i got back from holiday and zoomed in on the image once I viewed it on my Large screen! (a nice gift)
