A charity walker dropped in at three north Norfolk lifeboat stations, as part of a 9,500 mile trek around the British and Irish Coast.
Alex Ellis-Roswell set off from his home town of Margate, in Kent, in August 2014, setting himself a £10,000 fundraising target.
He has since covered more than 9,000 miles, raising more than £50,000 for the RNLI.
After calling at Heacham, Snettisham and Hunstanton, Mr Ellis-Roswell, 24, dropped in at Sheringham lifeboat station before going on to Cromer, where he stayed with a crew member.
He was then welcomed by crew members at Happisburgh lifeboat station, before continuing on to the Suffolk Coast.
Sheringham crew member Jamie Crisp said Mr Ellis-Roswell had tucked in to a pizza and a can of Guinness during his visit.
“After some much-needed rest, Alex was looking forward to visiting the Mo Museum and treating himself to some local ice cream,” he added.
