The Anonymous Widower

King’s Lynn

I went to King’s Lynn today, because I had written about the Fen Line and I’d never been there before.

Note the references to George Vancouver.

I wonder how many Canadians visit! After all it only cost me about twenty pounds with a railcard to come up from Kings Cross.

The weather could have been better! But I can remember a day, when we took the dogs to North Norfolk for a walk,  on a sunny day. Celia was wearing a summer dress over a bikini, but by the time we got to the beach, it was so dreich, we went straight back home. That’s North Norfolk for you!

  1. Various of my ancestors come from villages in the Kings Lynn area; it is a lovely little town.

  3. Depends on which part of Canada affects one’s fancy. I grew up in Manitoba, at a time when the trip to the West Coast was 2 full days on the train, and now live in New Brunswick, which most West Coasters think is some sort of shadow behind Quebec (if they ever think past Toronto). Vancouver means about as much to me as does whoever it was “first saw” the Cape of Good Hope. My brother, OTOH, lives in Victoria so may have some passing interest.
