For this summer holiday, me and my family ventured out to the wonderful Norfolk for two weeks. I have always found that going away for two weeks is one of the most relaxing and calming things ever. It’s a long drive from our home to the campsite where we were staying but it was honestly one of the nicest caravan sites I’ve been too. The site was peaceful at night and even in the day it wasn’t overally busy. After setting up our pitch (one of the most stressful parts of the holiday might I add) we enjoyed the tranquility and peacefulness of the site.
As for Norfolk itself, I must admit I’ve never known a place as beautiful. The landscape that surrouneded us was like something out of a book, absoultey goregous. We took walks along the river almost ever day within the first week, in Hoveton and Horning. In Horning me and my sister found this outdoor table tennis table, we spent a good 1/2 an hour playing. (I’m definalty not a natural player!) This is one thing I love about going away is the time we get to spend as a family, often at home we are all so busy that it’s nice while we are away to spend time together. One of the most increadabile days out from our time in Norfolk was spending a day on a boat. My dad grew up holidaying on boats and was like a child at christmas when we hired one. My family and my Grandparents spent the day relaxing a chilling out of the boat and having a laugh when something happened. We had amazing weather aswell which made the day twice as increadable – me and my sister even ended up sitting on the back of the boat sun bathing. I would definalty do this again, it was one of the most peaceful things I think I have even done. If any of you visit here or someplace simular it’s worth spending that little extra to go on a boat for the day.
Spending time with my family this summer was brilliant, we ended up in our second week visiting Stow Mill, which was stunning. It had be restored and we were able to look around inside and see what each level would have been used for. Me and my sister also had our childhood memories moments when we decided to attempt to sculpt a boat out of the sand just like our day used to do when we were younger. I think it turned out okay in the end! We also visited Norwich while we were away, and even though it was pretty simular to Cardiff it was still lovely to go round a look at the beautiful city. Towards the end of our holiday we spent two days on a beach in Horsley. Now there was something quite spectaular about this beach and that was the fact that there was a colony seals there. It was a moment I will never forget seeing the seals becasue they aren’t common. I spent almost an hour taking photos and watching the seals. It was amazing when we were in the sea and the seals would come towards you, they are so inquizative.
These two weeks were amazing, I will never forget them. If you are looking for somewhere to visit for a week or two but you don’t want to go abroad, I would definalty recommend the Norfolk Broads. The Broads are increadible when you drive through, it’s a moment you won’t forget. I think my family will definalty be visiting the borads again. I hope you are all enjoying your summers.
