At about 2.30pm on Bank Holiday Monday Freya said: “I wish we could go to the beach.”

We hadn’t done much the previous two days and so, even though it wasn’t entirely beach weather (brrrrrr), we piled into the car and drove to Sea Palling.


Having been there in the summer when it’s heaving with people, it was rather nice to have the beach almost to ourselves. In fact, it seemed like there were more people in the water than on the sand at one point.


I’ve never seen kitesurfing before but found it quite mesmerising. Freya wasn’t quite so keen on the wind but was still happy building sandcastles and playing in the pools (where we found razor shells for the first time). Mark was just…cold (for some reason he didn’t bring a big coat).


“I know, let’s warm-up with an ice-cream,” Freya suggested.

Mark and I opted for freshly cooked warm sugar doughnuts instead.

Wishing you all a lovely week.
