    Anyone For Hickling?

    Since it would appear that Albion ran aground this morning according to FB. I assume in an area she normally wouldn't. We must therefore assume water levels are LOW

    Somerleyton Bridge Not Operational

    Surely isn't this the issue of not installing the summer rails which were laying beside the track? Unless they have been taken away for scrap?

    Well done for getting as far as you did - I think you passed our guard ship when I had decided if no one else was going to take the opportunity of a couple of hours kip I would so apologies for not saying hello. I might say that it was mighty hard seeing boats pass Thurne, we could only see nav lights, not sails so there were some going back to Horning and some going to Potter - not easy in the fog!

    Our guardship was allowed to return to Horning at around 7.30 but Thurne b remained until it was confirmed that the last boats in the lower Bure couldn't make it home in time. We had acquired a white boat needing a lift home so we were allowed to go. Several boats with engines picked up non powered boats on the way home!

    There's a bit of a breeze at Thurne but a lot are stuck in Horning at the moment. Just seen a few drops of fine rain on the windscreen

    I shall be at Thurne on the Acle leg as usual but we are not over staffed so might not have time to acknowledge or chat - sorry!

    My Day

    Thank you Gracie - I think I might be Granny Liz. Not sure yet, it might be a something that develops. Mum and baby being allowed home later which is very good news.

    My Day

    My day was more my weekend. I didn't make the Horning Boat Show nor the Swallows & Amazons talk at Norfolk Broads Yacht Club (although WR did make it there - that was another story!). My weekend was a quick dash to Cardiff to see my first grandchild who was born at 01:01 weighing in at 7lb 10oz on Saturday 5th May! Mum and baby are doing okay although they did have a pretty rough/tough time. First picture is 13 hours old and the second 1 day and 13 hours old! Although his first interest will be cycling, I am hoping he will also like sailing and boats! He will probably also be tri-lingual with Welsh, English and Polish as languages he will be able to speak!
