    Anything I can do with a pint in hand or close by sounds good to me.

  1. At least the fish are happy 🙄
  2. About 5inches of the White stuff in my part of jockland this morning. Cleared a route to the gritted roads and steady on to work, about 10mile. No dramas really, most folk taking it easy. A wee bit snow doesn't stop us 😁. Got home and done my bit by clearing all paths for elderly neighbours either side of me. More snow tonight, so groundhog day tomorrow 🙄.
  3. Salhouse..... The trees and the shelter,the birds and the bees the ice cream boat , the ducks and the geese. The boats on the shore with their kids and their dogs, with me on my mudweight tied up to a log. laughing at memories, making some more saying hi Mum, she's on the broad floor!
  4. Have a proper day out at the football.The old team and the Young team, few beers , the journey there, a visit to the pub, a sing song then off to the game. The atmosphere, the company, the smells, the memories.
  5. I joined in 2015. Not sure how I found it, probably just surfing all things broads! Iain ( broadscot) quickly befriended me, and others made me welcome. It does have a nice family feel to the place, and I have been offered some touching help and great advice over the years. I have made what I would count as friends on here. Alas, nothing stays the same, and for one reason or another I don't post as much. I do still look in , and hopefully will get back in the habit of posting more often. A wealth of knowledge and kindness is certainly in here.
  6. Hibernian FC are the only football team worth supporting. Everyone, who knows anything about football knows that .
  7. As sure as the tide goes in and out, it was always going to be no deal. Boating will get more expensive, we don’t as a country manufacture much these days. The broads however may flourish, not to everyone’s pleasure , but going to Europe may be more expensive , and red tape will be an obstacle which may put many off. Hence stay cations might be more popular. The broads could be a very busy place in the next few years.
  8. Tough going mate. Keep the chin up, better days ahead for sure.
  9. Keep the chin up. Better days ahead I'm sure
  10. I like spiders They tend to kill all the things that want to bite you
  11. I've been on the broads many many times. I accept that not everyone is experienced, and mistakes will be made. Add to that alcohol and bumps are all part of it. This however complete disregard for any safety. Someone could have got seriously injured, and the boat could have been written off , I kid you not. Sturdy old boat it must have been. If it had been my own boat , I would have called the police, it was criminal. I maybe should have, it crossed my mind , but thought better of it, especially in the current climate.
  12. From how hill we headed to Sutton, and popped into the hotel to enquire about booking a table the following day. From there we headed up to Wayford bridge, where we moored just before the bridge, and set up for the night. All was going well, though not catching much fish, when a family returning from the hotel and clearly smashed , boarded their boat and attempted a 3 point turn to head back towards Stalham. Well, they rammed my boat when reversing , not once but 3 times!! Now I'm not talking a little bump here, full on ramming me into the moorings. By the 3rd time, my language was let's say
  13. So, 1st morning ,had some coffee and toast and took in the beautiful scenery. We had no plan as such, just follow the tide!! I had spoken to the bridge pilot the day before, and he reckoned we might get underwater in the week if we got some high pressure. So first stop was going to be Ludham bridge. There was a stiff breeze , so you are never short of a bit action there!! I was half way through a challenge to do 30 press ups for 30 days, so done them on deck while we were leaving the broad and posted them on a family what's app group. They river was quite busy but an uneventful pleasant
  14. So, after much is it on? , is it off? I picked up Silver light from HW on the day Britain opened up (4/7/20) Myself , my good lady and nearly 18yo junior son travelled the 500 miles.to Norwich , the day before and stayed in a hotel , so we were nice and fresh for our week aboard. Arrived at Potter Heigham around 10:30 , but unfortunately the peop!e who were booked for the day before were quite rightly given priority, so we didn't get the boat until around 1330. Lathams , the tackle shop and burger van were all visited before we were boarded. A very quick handover , unpack and off w
