Blakeney Point

On Saturday we went to Blakeney Point to see seals. We saw a swallows nest as well. There was a book fair with lots of good books and mum and dad got me a book called At the back of the North Wind.

Mum and dad got us tickets to go on a boat. I loved it. I love the feeling of being water. All the water was rushing past and it felt so nice when I got sprayed with water. I am going to live in a houseboat when I grow up. It will be called "The Bookworm".

On our boat we saw some seals. The baby seals were soooooooo cute. We also saw some males fighting.

Then after we got off the boat we learned what dad and Lydia had been up to. They had been having a marvellous time. They went for a walk and they saw some crabs. Lyddie even made up a song: "Daddy and Lydia went for a walk, Lydia was sitting on Daddy's back, Lyddie, Lyddie, Lyddie Lou".

After Blakeney Point we saw Oxburgh Hall. We got a book called "50 things to do before you're 11 3/4". Most of the things I had already done. The hall was great. We got to go inside a priest hole. A priest hole is a place where priests would hide when Queen Elizabeth's servants went looking for them. They needed to hide because they were Catholic. Nobody was allowed to be Catholic then. Some priests hid for days in there. It was very cosy.

  1. This looks like it was a great visit Bec. The priest holes look interesting, you wouldn't have wanted to be in one for long. Love Grandad

  2. Was the moat deep?
    Could you swim in it?
