    Back To The Summer Of 1976?...

    I remember this very well indeed! Mainly due to a rather tender and well roasted pair of shoulders. We were out on "Morgans Treasure" from Bucaneer Boats who were ex Pirate Craft at Brundall. My mate was out on Alphacrafts "Mustang". A lingering memory is being outsde at the "Loaves & Fishes" by the yacht station at Beccles for rather a long time and managing to get through rather a lot of falling down water! Loved it! As was a trend at the time among a few, we had hair way down past our shoulders along with the multi patched Levis and tie dyed grandad shirts! Yes, we were 60's leftovers.

    That is simply magnificent. Very well done.

    Beware The Yare On The 31st May

    I did wonder if Martham Ferry had opened a yard down by the salty stuff but then wondered why on earth they would!

    Dream Time

    Always did like the look of Castle Craft's boats at St Olaves. The navy blue hulls were/are smart. Was a shame to see them go.

    Somerleyton Bridge Not Operational

    Robin's post is most relevant and interesting in its proposals. I would heartily agree with them although I would exclude Abellio. Remove the need to pay dividends to shareholders. Its no accident that Europe's succcessful and modern railways are all state owned. Its also interesting to note that the government successfully ran the East coast line for six years before Virgin and Stagecoach greedily grabbed it in 2015 and have had to hand it back because of the costs. So even Branson and Brian Souter couldn't manage it! Apologies for going off on a political bender but it is something I do feel a tad strongly about and is the best way to find money to repair ageing bridges. Just a footnote ......... please don't throw that old chestnut "Don't you remember British Railways of old???" Playing with trains has changed beyong any recognition.

    The Sun Setting, But Where?

    I reckon its up at the Stalham/Sutton end, not that far off Richardsons.

    As far as I know (not very far!) bumble bees are particularly important because of the major role they have in pollination. A key to many other activities!

    Recently, every time I load this site I get a message asking me if I want to allow the site to send me notifications.. Why do I have to say "no" every time instead of just the once? You may have guessed I do not want notifications!

    Bit Of A Stretch

    I suspect Baryy has it! The reference to "pushing the boundaries" indicates the Waveney, it being the Norfolk/Suffolk border.

    Seems Horning Sailing Club have disabled their webcams which is disappointing. They usually run all year round although on the delayed reload. The only one still running is Herbert Woods Potter view. A shame for all us distant Broads viewers!
