On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions. From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
On the Road continues, forever Alain’s in our hearts.
Good Morning All,
This weekday feature is for Juicers who are are on the road, traveling, or just want to share a little bit of their world via stories and pictures. So many of us rise each morning, eager for something beautiful, inspiring, amazing, subtle, of note, and our community delivers – a view into their world, whether they’re far away or close to home – pictures with a story, with context, with meaning, sometimes just beauty. By concentrating travel updates and tips here, it’s easier for all of us to keep up or find them later.
So please, speak up and share some of your adventures and travel news here, and submit your pictures using our speedy, secure form. You can submit up to 7 pictures at a time, with an overall description and one for each picture.
You can, of course, send an email with pictures if the form gives you trouble, or if you are trying to submit something special, like a zipped archive or a movie. If your pictures are already hosted online, then please email the links with your descriptions.
For each picture, it’s best to provide your commenter screenname, description, where it was taken, and date. It’s tough to keep everyone’s email address and screenname straight, so don’t assume that I remember it “from last time”. More and more, the first photo before the fold will be from a commenter, so making it easy to locate the screenname when I’ve found a compelling photo is crucial.
Today, some pictures from last year from valued commenter Sloane Ranger.
Like so many pictures emailed late summer-winter, they were skipped over. Thanks for everyone’s patience!
Sloane Ranger took these pictures when visiting friends who live in the traditional English seaside resort of Cromer in Norfolk and thought peeps here might be interested in seeing what such a place looks like.
A typical English summer day at the seaside! View of the pier taken from the Clifford on 27 July 2017.
The Pavilion Theatre at the end of the pier and home to the last remaining end of pier show in the world (according to the ads). This is a variety show with singers, dancers, speciality acts and bad comedians.
A street in Cromer with traditional fishermens cottages. Now mainly owned by wealthy weekenders.
Cromer taken from the pier. The Victorian Gothic building in the foreground is the Hotel de Paris. Stephen Fry was a waiter there before he became famous.
Beach Huts. Useful for stowing your beach gear, brewing up a pot of tea and sheltering from the rain.
Fish and Chips. THE seaside food.
And to my eye, that looks like some smashed peas – wonderful – a proper meal!

Thank you so much Sloane Ranger, do send us more when you can.
Travel safely everybody, and do share some stories in the comments, even if you’re joining the conversation late. Many folks confide that they go back and read old threads, one reason these are available on the Quick Links menu.
