    I'll leave this one in case anyone fancies a go. I can't have made it much easier this time.

    Speaking of beers The pub everyone failed to get was The Decoy Tavern at Fritton. And I'm sorry to say, I had a pint of Becks and it was awful, maybe just a bad day but on that experience it wasn't good at all.

    I have to say I've never drunk larger either, but I do enjoy a nice premium lager None of that Carlsberg or Fosters type rubbish however

    Old before your time HG? It must be hanging around some of this lot that's done it

    Don't be one of the sheep, be a Chameleon with attitude. I know it's the in thing on the forum to pretend lager is the anti Christ, but a decent northern lager trumps any of the snooty nosed beers banded about. I'm flying the flag for the younger generation, and young one's drink premium lager

    A Winters Tale

    Monday 10th December Right, last one as I think I am as bored of these as you all are I woke up to a beautiful morning at Somerleyton, 3° and a ground frost but gorgeous blue skies with the sun shining away. As ever I took the dog out for a walk and then sat with a coffee before preparing to set off, after a chat with my overnight neighbour I finally did head out at 1000 back up the Waveney towards Reedham. I travelled along the New Cut and joined the Yare passing under Reedham Bridge (9') and through Reedham itself. The moorings had topped the bank once again, but I didn't concern myself with that today as I was moving on. I continued along the Yare, and as I passed an empty Cantley I found the moorings in a worse state than the ones at Reedham. Mental note made to avoid later in the week unless the water levels dropped I continued on all the way along the river passing Brundall (tempted to stop at Coldham Hall but pushed on). Finally as I found myself passing the Ferry House at Surlingham, the side on moorings were really badly flooded but the stern on moorings were completely empty...What did I say earlier in the week about not passing up an opportunity So after mooring, I headed inside for a drink to find that there was an almighty (possible slight exaggeration) Christmas dinner going on. I had to wait for nearly 10 minutes to be served, if I wasn't asking for a beer I'd have walked out. Nevertheless once served I enjoyed a lovely pint or 2 beside the water watching my boat in the sunshine. I almost stayed for the night, but knowing I really needed to press on, I finished up and set off once more to my home mooring at Brundall And set out for an evening sampling the refurbished delights of the The Ram Inn and then another evening aboard before heading off to lay my fat one down.

    Ooh missed this one, there is nothing wrong with a good pint of Becks. I'm guessing Mr C is darn sarf and having to drink their flat tasteless attempts at serving a proper pint, so no hope there then. I like the short stuff too ( I know pick yourself up off the floor from amazement), about 5'4" is about the perfect short for me

    It's been high all weekend. Most places darn sarf overtopping, and by a lot too, bridge clearances have been silly

    The refurbished Brundall Ram is looking very nice still smells of paint too so you can get high whilst you enjoy your pint of Carling

    It really isn't I assure you that I am not well trained. I go because I want a beer and so, being so kind hearted I'll get other people one at the same time too. Never seem to see any money offered to me for doing so though I love both sides and will always aim to do some of both when possible, the crossings haven't been good this week though so stayed South, when I'm back in a couple of weeks I aim to stay t'up north though so it's all good.

    Not anything, it has to be alcoholic, and then yes, yes I do Yes I know a woman who has barophobia too. Do you not use the southern broad? Good on you, they are awful. Very few bars and terrible monsters, best staying up north.

    So sorry about that Sir. If it's any consolation, I am hating every single gorgeous drop that quenches my undying thirst on this gloriously sunny day beside the river.
