With the 3rd week of the summer holidays now started, time just seems to be flying by very quickly. The carnival’s along the coast are all well underway with some nearly now at an end. Despite the Olympics, the recession,the weather (oh yes the weather!) the North Norfolk coast is bustling with visitors and generally despite the several downpours its been quite a mild week.
The seal trips have been very good with several hundreds of seals being seen each trip! the pups are slowly increasing in number (bit later arriving than last year). The terns are gradually moving on along the coast building up strength to make their long journey back home to West Africa later this month,we still have lots at the Point at the moment but i guess they will move on shortly.
This year The National Trust is celebrating 100 years of owning & managing Blakeney Point, they had a great day on Saturday (the weather was perfect) the boats took people over to the Point at 8.30am where the wardens took groups on guided walks, a plaque was unveiled and a massive cake was cut and shared out to around 100 guests to start the celebrations, some then came back to Morston by boat the others spend the day sunbathing and relaxing on the point & walked back at low tide. The Trust have various things going on this month visit their Website for details.
The tides again have been on the large size the last few days with several cars being caught out, the biggest ones have now passed thank goodness.
The traditional Fair has arrived at Blakeney and starts this Wednesday on the carnser so beware Blakeney car park is very small this week.

All we ask that if you book PLEASE turn up or at least phone us and let us know if you can’t make it! we can then re-sell you seats to others who want to go. Many thanks!
