After our journey we settled in to our chalet and then went for a lovely three course meal in the evening. After the meal we went for a dance and watched the show, it was singing and dancing. Everyone was in bed by eleven as we had all had a long day travelling.
Nordic walking Tuesday 17th April

In the morning some of the group went to a sing along and enjoyed joining in, Sarah loved singing. There was also Nordic Walk in the morning for those who wanted to join in. After lunch Jon and Peter walked down to the beach with Marion. We also went for a ride to Lowestoft beach and took in the local sights. Later in the evening we enjoyed the entertainment which tonight was a singer and comedian. Peter liked him so much he bought a CD to help him remember his stay.
Wednesday 18th April

On site we have a pool with a glass roof. Some of the group enjoyed a swim, it was lovely and warm under the glass. Jon went for a landscape walk in the morning with the Warner team. In the afternoon some of the group also went on the landscape walk. There was also a chance to practice putting. Today we had lunch and everyone said it was amazing with so many different things to chose from. After lunch we went to the afternoon show time. Later we enjoyed dancing along with the resident band called Crackerjack.
sea front Thursday 19th April

After breakfast, Jon decided to go for a walk and take in the Gunton Hall area which is set in Woodland. Then we all went to Gorlestan-on-Sea situated at the mouth of the river Yare. It has a sandy beach along with a promenade and we were very lucky with the weather as it was the warmest day of the year, so far. Of course as it was so warm we had to enjoy a yummy ice cream!
Friday 20th April

Today some of us decided to go for a swim and some went shopping to a nearby supermarket. Later we went to visit Great Yarmouth. We sat by the beach and had sandwiches for lunch. Then we stopped for a drink in a cafe and watched the waves lapping on the shore. We saw some horse and carts travelling along the promenade. There was a chance to buy some souvenirs or gifts for friends. Raymond liked watching the sea most today. Again, later we took in the entertainment back at our accomodation.
Great Yarmouth
Wroxham Barn Saturday 21st April

This morning we visited the Wroxham Barn where we had lunch in their cafe. Wroxham Barn is a popular tourist attraction and houses craft shops, another chance to buy gifts or souvenirs, with lots of pretty things on sale. Everyone also had an ice cream before going back. Some went for a stroll and later we went for our evening meal followed by the evening entertainment.
Sunday 22nd April

This was our last full day so we sorted as much of our packing as we could. Some decided to go swimming and some wanted to walk to the lake to see the fish. We visited Gorleston and had another ice cream by the beach (we are on holiday!). We were hoping we would see some boats at Gorleston Harbour but unfortunately we did not see any. In the evening the entertainment was a 'Frank Sinatra' tribute act.
Gunton Hall Holiday
Gunton Hall Monday 23rd April

It is home day but we enjoyed our last lovely breakfast together, finished our packing and set off for our homes. We had been impressed by the selection and choice of meals for Breakfast and each 3 course meal every evening. The weather and surrounding area had been lovely.
