Listen in, listen Ian!
Hello! I went away for the weekend - I stayed in Cromer and it was v nice.

I went to the zoo, which only has South American animals, including capybaras. Giant guinea pigs!

The main reason I went to stay in the area was so that I could see seals. I got up early on Saturday and caught a bus to Morston, from where I went on a boat trip to Blakeney Point. We went out to the end of the point, and it was great - there are loads and loads of seals just basking on the beach, and plenty of them in the water, coming up to the boat to say hello.

After seeing the seals, the boat landed on the point to let us have a wander around it for an hour - it's lovely, a big area of dunes with lots of birds there, including oystercatchers:

I also saw sand martins, terns and also - and they're really called this - greenish warblers. Come on bird namers, you can do better than this.

While I was messing with my camera, I realised that it has a tilt-shift mode, and so I had to have a bit of a play with it:

On Saturday night, I had fish and chips which I ate on the sea front.

Fun weekend!

I want a capybara. Apparently it's legal in some US states to keep them as pets.

Sounds like a great weekend all round - can't beat watching seals and eating chips.

It looks like a toy model pier! Nifty effect.
