It was my birthday yesterday so Debbie and I travelled out to the North Norfolk coast to have a look around. I had wanted to visit the seals at Blakeney but hadn’t figured that to find them you would need to walk many a mile – we did see and hear them, from a distance, but decided, as the tide was coming in today wasn’t the day to stride out and get cut off from dry land. On returning to the National Trust car park it was very clear that the boat rides out to see the seals were extremely popular with hundreds of people queuing to go out…including a couple of coach loads of school kids, one of whom, called “Albion” amused us greatly with a spectacular announcement that he was exhausted and promptly collapsing to the ground. It was clear teacher had seen this all before…

We moved on to Holkham Hall beach just by Wells-Next-The-Sea and we certainly weren’t disappointed. The beach there is immense.

It takes quite a walk to reach the water’s edge…we were about and hour or two before high tide…but it is a fabulous beach. As it is during school term time it was full of couples and dog walkers enjoying the fabulous weather.

There are also fabulous sand dunes awaiting climbing and exploring, which, of course, I did.

Back home for a slap-up Indian to complete a very pleasant birthday.
