I've just come back from a visit to England and I thought I'd like to share a few pictures with you all.
A few weeks ago my son suggested that we meet up in Norfolk and celebrate a (slightly early) Christmas by visiting a beach where grey seals have just begun to establish a breeding colony. He arranged to rent a cottage that would be suitable for four adults, one baby and three dogs and after a lot of negotiating dates (they both work and we have a lot of French lunches to go to!) we all headed towards Eccles-on-sea in Norfolk
For us, travelling up from central France, this is a two day journey. We managed to get to Boulogne the first day, then crossed the Channel the next morning and headed for Norfolk. We arrived mid afternoon the next day and settled into the cottage which had a garden backing onto the beach - very nice, but cold and windy!
The next day we set out to find the seals on Horsey beach
We had to walk for about 15 minutes and then we came to the dunes and realised just how many seals there were!
Now I have to confess that my camera just isn't good enough for wildlife photography, so all these photos were taken by my husband. He's a very good photographer, but has never really got into DA but if you like his photos check out pmitchfr
Also during the course of this few days my granddaughter started walking and it was wonderful to be there when she had her first walk on the beach!
It was a really good week and I definitely feel as if I've had a lovely Christmas even though it hasn't arrived yet. So we've seen our family which is the most important thing and now we're going to pack the dogs and head for Spain for the actual holidays - we might find a bit of sun! So watch this space the next journal should be coming from a beach in Spain!
