I love where I live on the North Norfolk coast, but sometimes living in a small beach town can have it’s drawbacks. Here’s a few things, good and bad, about living in a seasonal town.
You’re always near the beach. I can see the sea from my window and as soon as I walk out my door. It stretches for miles and on a clear day you can even see over the Wash to Skegness.
You get so used to the beach being deserted in the winter that as soon as summer comes you find myself wondering who all these people on your beach are. If the weatherman predicts good weekend weather you just know the beach will be swarming with tourists.
There’s always good ice cream to be found just down the road. Or, even better, a Mr Whippy with a flake. As a local you also know who sells the best ice cream, no queuing for substandard stuff!
The ice cream is so good it’s addictive and you find yourself wanting ice cream in the midst of a great British downpour.
When the weather is supposed to be bad but it’s actually good, the beach is empty as no one wanted to drive all that way for rain.
Come October everything is shut until Easter. No more crazy golf or bumper cars for another six months!
