Day three was a game of three halves, one good, one bad, one very good. Yes I know it should be thirds but as a footie fan and with the World Cup on, tough it’s going to be halves!

Starting from March and the Oliver Cromwell Hotel that we stayed in, we had a donation from the staff for Parkinson’s UK, solar panels on their roof and a suggestion to go via the local prison for a wind turbine and even better a set of solar panels like a miniature solar farm.

The next half involved a ride through historic King’s Lynn and a ride around Sandringham Estate i.e. I went around it, didn’t go through it but the reason for the bad half was that I was running late and running out of energy as I had planned to meet with Simon at Great Bircham which was just too late in the day for me. Poor old Simon, I walked in out of humour and out of it!

Thankfully, another donation to the cause from the manager at the Kings Head Hotel and a round of sandwiches got me back in the game and I was able to finish at Wells Beach, the home of the Sheringham Shoal Wind Farm boats, the ones that go out to do the support and maintenance of the 88 turbines, about ten miles out to sea.

And finally, I got to see Amanda and Nancy, which made it a fantastic third half.
