Penultimate Blog for you this week

 

With two wins under our belt can we keep the momentum going. Sophie Little was hoping so and her cohort Pilot Perrott was giving it all she had to help that along. David Whiteley he of the Norfolk surfers suntan Face, hands and feet only was on hand to guide them to the final destination. Questmaster was sullen in his mood having lost the last two, but had the clues done and dusted for this one. Final hurrah today for Glam Anna  (Earl Grey) Morton, as her packing is all done, for her move to Brighton to take up a teaching role. We were ensconsed in Mundesley to start and finished up at Hopton Fete to collect the treasure.
