A walk to Thetford

We walked to Little Thetford village, over the flood bank and down to the field, across the railway and passed the lovely front gardens.
I have always liked the old varieties of rose with their strong sweet scent.
Dominating the scene is a large pink thatched cottage by Green Lane, apparently once a busy pub.

Then we saw this round building said to be a Beacon House built to warn of a French invasion.
We returned to Ely because we needed to go ‘home’ to see family again. So am sorry not much has been written about our adventures on the water. Must say that we are impressed with the train service with plenty of information at the stations and in the carriages.

I totally agree about the roses. If a rose hasn't got a perfume it is ony half a rose, regardless of colour.

What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.

Looked at your blog. Good luck with the boat.
