Words can not describe this place and photos do not do it justice... Even when the weather is not so kind this bay will leave you breathless

The water was warm, the colors of the water is a brilliant turquoise, big and small can swim there. There are some Glass bottom boats there to actually see the bottom of the bay. We came down to the bay every day for some time to relax.

The whole of Norfolk is beautiful. As you drive around you go up a hill and when you get to the top the view takes your breath away.
