See the Seals at Winterton and Horsey

A walk on the beach can be a refreshing antidote to all that eating we’ve probably done over the last few days. Norfolk of course has a wonderful choice of beaches, each with its own unique character and features. My personal favourite is Winterton  – I love the miles of empty sand and paths through the dunes, there’s a great café and it is dog-friendly all year.  I will be going for a walk this week with friends and family along the beach towards Horsey until we come to the seals…literally hundreds of them, mothers and babies, littering the water’s edge until around the end of January. If you’ve never experienced this amazing sight, it is well worth a visit. You can follow the crowds to Horsey itself  for sightings from the dunes if  the walk from Winterton is too long for any family members.  Do take care not to disturb the seals.
