Offshore wind farm story reminds me of holidays in Norfolk

You'll forgive me a moment of personal meandering but a story spotted last week on New Energy Focus about how a Wells-Next-The-Sea (on the Norfolk coast) safety and work boat provider had won a contract to support the Sheringham Shoal offshore wind farm, sent me back to many a happy summer holiday spent in that lovely seaside town.

I don't know if the wind turbines will be visible from the beaches at Wells', and the subsequent walks along the coast.

I did manage to sneak back to Wells' a few years ago and very little had changed - the lifeboat station was still at the end of the long sea wall walk at the beach itself and the caravan and camping park, apart from newer buildings is still there.

Even from the air (Google maps) you can still see the walks through the pine forest.

A warm hello to anyone in Wells next the Sea - thank you for many happy holiday memories that remain as vivid as ever today, and congratulations to Safety Boat Services on winning the contract.
