... B&B. The day's walk ends happily as we look up through the still damp sky to see a double rainbow leading us to our final resting place for tonight.
During the evening I realise we are getting very close to the end of our pilgrimage. Today was the last Friday we will walk as Hopton awaits us next Thursday evening.

Came back in time to visit the Norwich Cathedral in time for Evensong. It's a really beautiful cathedral with some soaring stained glass windows, some gorgeous (modern) embroidered banners and lovely cloisters. Finished up with afternoon tea at the Maids Head Hotel which is next door to the Cathedral and just up the road from where we are ...
