    I arrived back on Thursday morning from a 2 week holiday in Orlando.  They really know what hot is over there, the temperature hit over 100 degrees Fahrenheit on most days I was there, and I saw locals walking about in Jeans! 

    The heat doesn't stop Floridian life like it does over here, the only difference I could see is there is Air Conditioning everywhere so you are generally only exposed to the heat when outside. 

    Was there December 1999, locals had coats, scarves and gloves while we wore T-shirts and jeans and no I`m not from the North East!

  2. NR8,

    Yep that was a storm, been brewing since around 7pm, spectacular light show with winds to blow a few wheelie bins over and it watered the garden nicely.

    For those of you who travel along the A12 between Kessingland and Pakefield  on their way to the Broads it is well worth a 100m (approx) detour to World of Fish, well worth a visit. 'Tis where the locals in the know go! http://www.world-of-fish.co.uk/

    Like the recipes there.

    A very nice thought John and thankyou. Our flight has been delayed by four hours too, so we will now be stuck at Norwich until 6pm.

    Oh, just for the record, no red light and only one precautionary pumpout in 3 weeks. Is it a record we ask?

    Not sure I want to read a thread concerning bowel movements in a 3 week period myself! :default_eusa_naughty:

    “This morning about 1100 it was still there. About 1400 a ranger's launch arrived and when I next looked about 1500, the Pelican was no longer there. Whether towed away, or under own steam, is not clear. So look out everyone - it's coming to a mooring near you!”

     

    Shame they don’t send him the bill.

    If he is in a council flat as said earlier maybe they did.

    The Pelican has now left the staithe at Stalham.

    2 days ago, some rangers arrived and were on board the boat. Yesterday, a large pirate flag was stuck on the bow, presumably as some kind of statement.

    This morning about 1100 it was still there. About 1400 a ranger's launch arrived and when I next looked about 1500, the Pelican was no longer there. Whether towed away, or under own steam, is not clear. So look out everyone - it's coming to a mooring near you!

    Meantime the other 4 squatters are still there and squatter is the right word, as they have a charming habit of doing their business in the hedges on the staithe. Sometimes in full public view. 

    All in all that was pretty quick wasn`t it?

    £1.20 a liter. I didn't fill right up. Just enough until I go down to Goodchilds but I'll do that when I go to Beccles or somewhere.

    Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
     

    Might want to pop back and fill up, website currently saying from 99p a litre.

    As I’m new to the broads in any depth (no pun intended) I’ve been amazed to learn how comprehensively unloved the BA are.

    Is there one particular “man in charge” who is responsible for every decision? Or is it a committee that by vote come to the wrong decision? 

    Are they out of touch with the real needs? or just misguided in the execution of what had the potential to be the right thing to do?

     

    Fairly new here myself but from what I`ve gleamed

    Yes
