Seals on the Blakeney coast

Blakeney 布萊克尼

Textured houses
Blakeney is a small village along the North Norfolk Coast; a forty-five minute drive from Norwich, the capital of Norfolk. The village is built-up with different kinds of stone houses, and due to the diverse masonry, traditions and techniques, these stone houses come with various colours and textures. Some house owners paint their property’s external walls completely bright white, blending beige, or soft pink, which has given the village its unique look. Harmonic but very different; a mix of ancient and modern complexion.
Blakeney是羅福北部海岸沿線的一個小村莊,由羅福的首都Norwich駕車到任何一個海岸城市,需時約半四十五分鐘。村子由一座座漂亮的石頭小屋組成。雖然都是石頭屋,由於使用的石頭類型,年代傳統和磚石技術不同,村子的石頭屋,有著不同的顏色和質感。有些更因歷年維修,屋主把外牆全部淘上不同的顏色,有雪亮的白色,調和的米黃色,柔柔的粉紅色。使整個村莊的景貌,柔和中帶著變湊的樂趣,做就了古今混融的迷人景色。

The village
The village is situated on a small hill, encircled by a main road. Opposite to the village is a visitor car park, connecting you to the soft green landscape; where rivers, swamps and dunes twist along the trail, extending all the way to the coastline and the neighbouring villages.
村莊座落在一個小山丘上,進村的主路和訪客停車場,分隔開對面一片一望無際,緣柔柔連海的草地,佈滿了溪流沼澤,沙丘泥灘。
Tea time
Travellers can walk along the seashore to the nearby Morston Quay, to the next coast Cley-next-the-sea (east). At Blakeney children can swim and kayak in the sea, or fish and catch crabs, while mum samples the local coffee, cream tea with scones or tasty seafood snacks, and leisurely watch the sunset.

As for us, we took a boat trip out to Blakeney Point to see the seals.

扭曲的峽谷,迂迴的小徑,伸延到海岸的Morston Quay(西和鄰村Cley-next-the-sea(east)。遊客可輕鬆地沿著海旁步行或遠足。有的一家人去釣魚捉蟹,品嚐地道咖啡奶茶烤餅,悠閒地看日落西灣,小孩們划艇嬉水。

我們就坐船出海去Blakeney Point看海豹。

The village town hall, a 14th century building, and St Nicholas Church, which just went under elaborate restoration, are both interesting features you do not want to miss.

I suggest travellers spend three days to be able to enjoy the scenery and activities in Blakeney.

在碼頭旁邊一條小街上的市政廳,是座14世紀的建築,還有那所經過精心修復的村莊教堂,其趣味特色,都是不容過錯過一遊的建築。

我提議用三天時間,去遊覽這個海岸村莊。

Blakeney Point
There is quite a large car park that is free for National Trust members.

Boat Trip
We had to travel a little further west on the coast road, to Stiffkey I believe, to collect the tickets for the boat trip. Book in advance as they do get busy.
