We have often been to the beach in the summer and seen a couple of seals pop their heads up above the water - usually scaring bathers and swimming dogs!
I'd seen many postings from friends on Facebook so off we went on Sunday afternoon, a little later than we intended and only the three of us (boys not interested in fresh air, apparently!) It was a much easier trip without the boys I have to say.
Horsey is around 30 minutes away and we parked on the roadside as apparently it was very busy further on and police were moving cars on. There were hundreds of seal watchers on the beach we were told.
We had a long walk along the beach and it was a bit "fresh"! But it was worth the walk, lots of mums and their pups on the beach and a few dads still in the water popping their heads up from time to time.
It was a lovely sight to see and I'm so glad it wasn't yet another year we missed them. We were on the beach too long though and the mist rolled in, I'm glad the builder took note of which steps we'd come down from the car (identified by which graffiti we passed)
or else we'd probably still be there! That mist was thick!
