Home to Seacroft (near Cromer) Norfolk

Today we left home at 10 am, and drove to Seacroft near Cromer. An interesting site for the Caravan Club, as it has a bar and restaurant, together with a small swimming pool.

We arrived at 1230, filled up with water - there were only four pitches left, and we got one with a hard surface (21). Quite pleasant.

We've bought 7 day tickets for the Coast Hopper bus, and went to Cromer to see the pier (had an Ice Cream) and did some shopping in the CoOp. In the evening we had a pint of Doombar and Yorkshire puddings with sausages (one veggie, one meat). An early night!!
