Every year, I suggest a holiday in the UK, and every year I get talked out of it because of weather fears.
This year however, funds were low so when a friend offered us use of their caravan in Caister, we gratefully accepted.
The clouds followed us up the A11 on Tuesday and I feared the usual.
But in the end, after one day of solid rain on Wednesday, we had more or less beautiful weather for the rest of the week.
Great Yarmouth is well served for rainy days anyway - the SeaLife Centre is a great favourite, as is the delightfully bonkers indoor golf at the Windmill Theatre.

Admittedly, on one occasion, a poo did float by when my boys were in the sea.

But it didn't seem to put them off an East Coast holiday and I'm glad.
I wanted them to have an East Anglian childhood so it's a rite of passage, isn't it?
