Alex Normans Summer Holiday



Travelled to Gorleston on the Norfolk coast stopping on route at nearby Hemsby for a stroll along the beach and to have fish and chips. Before leaving we popped into an Arcade for a few goes on the 2p machines which Alex really enjoyed. It was then back into the car and on to our destination. After we had unpacked and freshened up we spent the last bit of the evening at the hotel bar and restaurant chatting with staff who were lovely.


The day was started with a lovely Toby Carvery breakfast where Alex couldn’t stop smiling, we then visited Horsey beach which is a fantastic area and one of the few places locally you can get up close and personal with seals in the wild. We had dinner on the sea front after a nice long walk along the coast before heading to The Britannia Pier Theatre to watch ‘Be Bop a Lula’ who cover songs from 60′s legends Buddy Holly, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Roy Orbison and more.


After brunch at a lovely local cafe and winning Beauty and the Beast figures in the arcade we visited ‘Africa Alive’, a zoo in Kessingland, we spent what felt like ages going around looking at all the animals. We were also very lucky in the fact that performing there were ‘The Mighty Zulu Nation Dance Troop’. Alex was amazed by their performance, he danced and clapped along throughout. He even got to meet the group after for a photo which really made his day. We then headed to Gorleston beach for ice cream and sat watching everyone flying kites.

Saturday was time to leave, after what was a fantastic break away.
