So, did you catch it?! It was a bit worrying when we woke up to a blanket of cloud but as usual we gave it a try anyway. The cloud was patchy at Heacham Beach, and some cover actually worked in our favour because we could safely see the shape of the sun through the clouds. Not only that but the clouds gave me some spectacular effects!
My home-educated little girl loved learning about what she was seeing, and was amazed to see the sun almost completely covered at 9.35am. We decided that at the peak, the sun looked a lot like the (quoted below) Cheshire cat's smile, from Alice in Wonderland. What do you think?
