Burnham Overy 01 1/5

Burnham Overy Staithe Windmill is a Grade II* listed building tower mill at Burnham Overy Staithe, Norfolk, now owned by the National Trust and which has been converted to holiday accommodation. The Honda Jazz is ours and you can make out Maureen in the front and her brother Ken in the back seat ‘patiently’ waiting for me to finish taking pictures of the windmill.

Very good composition, Brian, and I like how the colour of your Honda matches that of the windmill.

I believe I can hear Maureen saying to Ken "If Brian doesn't stop fiddling with that darn camera soon then I am driving off and he can walk to the tea-room!".
Brian Walbey: Thanks ray, the colour match was of course purely by chance.
It does look very nice!
Brian Walbey: I'm assuming you mean the windmill not our car smile

It is a nice windmill
Brian Walbey: Quite a nice place to stay, at a price no doubt.

I'm waving to Maureen and Ken.
Brian Walbey: Trouble is she's not looking in your direction Chad smile

Its good that you have such a support crew. "Hello Maureen!".
Brian Walbey: We had a really good week away in a cottage at Wells-next-the-Sea, it was a long way from home for Ken as he lives down the road from you in Poole.

Superbe moulin ! Je trouve dommage qu'il y ait la voiture qui gâche un peu le paysage.
Brian Walbey: The car is deliberate Martine being my car with Maureen behind the wheel and her brother in the back seat. Many people on SC have had the pleasure of meeting Maureen several times over the years for real.

I wonder that there are only three winga. Maureen is a very patient wife.
Brian Walbey: The fourth sail is hidden behind the mill Philine. Maureen is used to waiting for me as I take photos, indeed when we were away last week there were times I was waiting for her to take photos.

Maureen is well used to you, Brian
Brian Walbey: Maureen is used to waiting for me as I take photos, indeed when we were away last week there were times I was waiting for her to take photos.
Supermodel Maureen is always a welcome visitor Brian
Brian Walbey: Very nice of you to say so bill.
Looks to be in fine condition! (The car too!)
Brian Walbey: Indeed, fortunately both are Tom.
We did see a windmill tourist house in the past but I am not sure if it was the same one. Very nice.
Brian Walbey: This one is a few miles further along the coast than the one I posted earlier, although both sets of photos were taken on the same day.
