  1. We moored in that location previously for a short stop off (after asking those already there if it was OK) No real issue to me either way if its used by the ferry as a loading and landing point Ours was a rather large ferry that week as we met some friends at the Malsters
  2. We have been visitors to the Broads since I was a nipper with my parents and generally we would hire from Ernest Collins or Jack Powles boatyards in Wroxham and we spent many days looking through the maps to plan our journey which invariably meant heading south and I recall mooring stern on at Waveney River Centre, on the main river where they now moor their day boats and getting caught up on the quay heading and having to give her a bit of a bounce and a shove to get her free! I was only about 12 year old at the time and my dad was giving the instructions! I recall nights in Norwich, tr
  3. I am sure she will be up and ready nice and early Enjoy your break Hopefully MS will be looking good after the winter maintenance
  4. Cant wait to get back to MS this Saturday for another wonderful week on the broads..................... Ohh wait!! Never mind it will soon be May......................................
  5. I also feel it's inevitable that some form of vaccine passport will be required It may be just for travel abroad initially (like the yellow fever card) but it will creep into certain forms of employment criteria, then certain industries and before you know it, I do believe (even though human rights activists will kick and scream) that it may become part of everyday life requirements for purchasing event tickets etc
  6. We love both those venues, but we have also had good times at the Lion at Thurne, White Horse at Neastished, Sutton Staithe, Recruiting Sergeant at Coltishall, Rising Sun at Coltishall, Swan Inn at Horning, Kings Arms at Ludham, Fur and Feather's, White Horse at Chedgrave, Kings Head at Loddon and Yare at Brundall. They are all very different, some quirky, some rustic, some lacking in many areas, but mainly we go for dog and people friendly establishments where you can chat with staff and customers go alone or in a group and we have found these to be welcoming to 2 and 4 legged friends al
  7. We will be making plans for our week on Moonlight Shadow... If it is cancelled again, so be it But we will definitely be making plans, as for us it's part of the fun, getting ready for another trip Lifejackets - check Dog food - check Alcohol - check 😉🍻
  8. We are due on MS 13th March for a week........................I am not banking on it though! Seems so long ago since we were last out on her Hopefully though after the winter maintenance this year she will be looking good when we eventually get down
  9. Fair Senator She appears to be listed for sale at the NYA
  10. Enjoy as much time as possible and I know you will just go with the flow The press conference has been put back to 5pm, so hopefully you will be able to get a few more days in yet Looks like our 21st Nov trip is looking more remote now though and to be frank, I cant see a lockdown of 3 or 4 weeks making much difference as I fear we will be in and out of lockdowns until the weather improves in March 21 and then it will all start again around October next year when the cold weather starts to bite again My son recently said his days felt like "Eat", "Drink", COVID", "Repeat" and we all
  11. We are due on Moonlight Shadow from 21st November, but today our region (Greater Manchester) went into Tier 3, so we have already informed BCBM that if we are still in tier 3 then we will not be travelling and we are happy for them to contact the other syndicate members to see if someone else may be able to use the week at short notice, as sadly things can change very quickly when it comes to lockdowns I feel it woudnt be right for us to travel whilst in Tier 3 and have decided to follow the government advice in not doing so.
  12. The dog walks are the biggest draw for us, as we tend to look for places which we can go and stroll with our boy and girl which isnt too tasking, but can get them some good exercise. Also thanks for the information on the Indian also as we do like a curry every now and then. My next google search will be the Merchants of Spice!!
  13. Loving the write-up as we plan our next trip in November, which no doubt will depend on tides, the weather and if the new inverter behaves. We dont like staying on the home mooring as our Newfies do not like stone footpaths or roads as it hurts their pads and Roxy even goes straight to the boardwalk and uses that when she can I am thinking Whitlingham Country Park and Commissioners Cut (2 places we have not stayed at before) and the run to Beccles and possibly beyond if the tides can be good to us as we intend staying south on our next visit
  14. If you ever need any and you follow us onto MS again let me know as I always have about 20 now!! Wont get caught out again!!
  15. We have never moored here either, but will definitely give it a go Just watched the video on the website and the aerial shot of the river looks a bit like Moonlight Shadow passing as she heads up river
