Donna Nook

Just before Christmas I took a trip to Donna Nook in Lincolnshire. The roads were comparable to an ice rink and the lack of ‘facilities’, once off the motorway, nearly had me in stitches (and not the funny kind). Once there, however, the seals were beautiful and their ‘love me’ eyes would make even Percy Wetmore melt into a puddle of mush.

It is worth noting that however cute and innocent these little chappies look they are wild animals and I cannot stress enough how important it is to love them from a distance. I heard stories of ill-informed (or maybe just ignorant) people climbing over the fencing that stretches along the beach and getting ‘up-close and personal’ with the seals. Not only can this lead to mothers abonding their new bairns but can also result in a well deserved bite.

Alas, I did tear myself away from these delightful creatures, I believe the arctic temperatures and knowledge that they would leave me anyway helped, but I have marked it in my calendar for 2010 to revisit Donna Nook. Am already looking forward to it!
