Hour and a half (ish) to the boat then I reckon two hours from Acle to Salhouse.

Going to guess we shall be arriving around 17.00hrs

I suppose you are basking in sunshine.

Here on the coast a cold Haar is rolling in from The North Sea, cliff top has gone from view as I do my pans.826953944_20180519_1840182.jpg.52bc1ba4fa76365e1e4036f37a268fa3.jpgh

Excellent photos Steve, thanks very much. I reckon Craig would be delighted to have a photo of the Elysian 27 for his database.

I sent him a photo of mine years ago in order to update but nothing happened so ours is still " hasn't been seen since..."

Been a very enjoyable day so far. Having got a bit nippy Ros and I have retired to our boat and under the duvet. 

Looking forward to a nice end to the evening and the thought of a full english breakfast in the morning :default_beerchug:

Morning all from a slightly chilly Salhouse.

I'm sure the sun will make an appearance soon and warm us all up :default_smile:

Great weekend. :) Got back to our mooring and now cleaning out the Salhouse sand!  Great to see some of the DIY Sos team again and  meet more NBN members.

Just to say once again many thanks to all involved in organising a fantastic event.

Both Ros and I will endeavour to get there earlier next year and spend more time with all:default_smile:

What a brill short film clip that was - Thanks for sharing.

Now I will never get even close to the giddy heights of our official forum idiot but as an apprentice idiot I accomplished one of those 'Idiot' or 'Senior' moments on Saturday afternoon.

There I was in the marked out bbq area tending to our bbq.  the wx was proper hot so I was donning shorts as one does.  I knelt down on the grass and a small thorn punctured ones stbd knee, not wanting to do an impression of a southern softie I ignored it thinking I would sort it out when I stood up.  However said thorn was getting more painful by the second.  Gritting ones teeth this ruffy toughy sailor was not giving in to such an insignificant thing though.  Standing up eventually and rather nonchalantly as a good amateur idiot does, I discovered I had noT knelt down on a thorn but a small piece of red glowing charcoal that had jumped out of my own bbq!  Said charcoal was merrily cooking it's way into my stbd knee!  I flicked it out of my now cooked knee flesh as though it was nowt but a flesh wound and carried on manfully as any northerner would do.  To be fair it did not really starting upping the pain levels until the next morning when one was sober wearing jeans.

Of course the 'B.A' crew thought the episode most hilarious.  I do have 'Feelings' you know
