I spent Sunday laying on a beach way up on the East coast of England with a colony of seals in the company of my friends Phil Morgan and Gerwyn Williams.
What a marathon it was, not far off 600 miles round trip leaving my house at 12.30am and returning about 10.45pm or thereabouts but when you can witness sights like this it's all worth it.

The last time we went, the sand dunes were inaccessible due to the previous high tide storm, which devastated the young 'uns

Might give it a go this yearWink
