July 10th 2015 – Seal Watching Trip
What an amazing day was had by all it was absolutely superb. Shopping and coffee in Holt, followed by the experience of watching seals out in the North Sea.
Followed by lunch and an ice cream in Blakney, the a glass making demonstration in Fakenham. The latter was also an experience, but the heat of the day and the furnaces forced many of us to give up and go outside for air. Thank you to everyone, especially Tracy Martin who organised the outing. It was a great day, its not where you go, but who you go with, that makes it extra special and great fun.
