King’s Lynn is blessed with more than its fair share of waterways.
Land drains like this one, used to drain the water from the marsh land and make it habitable, are a common site, but their utilitarian nature has been smoothed over time.
Grass and wild flowers abound along the bank, and on sunny days like this one, with the water reflecting the blue sky, it seems really like a natural stream, rather than a man-made artifact.
Here it seems so much like a country village that it is difficult to imagine that the busy market area is only a few streets away, with all the bustle and noise of that center of commerce.
It is peaceful and restful, an idyllic escape into the countryside, right here in the center of town.
Traveling through the lanes of West Norfolk, England, we stop to admire the tiny stream on the edge of the woods.
To our right the trees are dense with foliage, and the stream seems to be a boundary of sorts, because to our left is a wooden fence and a brightly painted gazebo.
And connecting these two worlds a white-painted wooden bridge spans the stream, reflecting prettily in the water.
Although the sky is gray, the whole scene is bright and vibrant with the water flowing and the cheerful hues of the trees and grass.
It is a scene that makes us take a deep breath of fresh air, and feel again the wonder of being alive.

This image captures a bright and picturesque rural scene, full of life yet calm and restful. The stream leads us into the picture, adding depth and the colors being a happy and joyful feel.
This image is also available in greeting card format, and would be ideal for formal or informal notes.

This scenic view draws us down past the Old Barge Inn on the left, along the riverside cottages, and into the tree line in the distance.
We imagine ourselves going into the Inn, and meeting the locals who have tales to tell of the way life used to be “in the old days”. Hearing them talk, it would be easy to recreate in our minds the bustle of a time when working barges moored here on their journey to London.
But for now, all is still and restful, allowing us a moment in time to stand and reflect.
