 This weeks challenge reminds me of the 6 years (starting with our honeymoon) that we stayed in the lovely Old Hunstanton Lighthouse. It was a fantastic chapter in our sumer holidays that we’ll never forget! 🙂

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! 😀

On our last evening we decided to have Sarah’s favourite doughnuts and watch the beautiful sunset from the sea front.

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.

Lighthouses Don’t Fire Cannons

Quote 4 2day title logo Blog

We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won’t need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine.
D. L. Moody

Sarah Standing Tall PNG

Bruce Standing Tall

My Thoughts 💭 

I would nominate my lovely wife Sarah for person of the year, she is simply amazing! 🙂

When I thought of the word ‘Big’, I immediately thought of these two photos I took of Sarah & Bruce with my fisheye lens on holiday in the lighthouse at Hunstanton, Norfolk.

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.

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.”

Sunburst features Hunstanton Lighthouse in Norfolk and was taken in July 2009 during an early morning walk with Sarah and our boxer dog Bruce. This is a very special place for us, as we had our honeymoon here five years ago and have returned to celebrate our anniversary every year since.

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)
