Great pics again Jay. I have happy memories of the Burgh Castle moorings. Is there some limited space by the Fisherman's? 

Thank you.

There are still the moorings by the Fisherman's, the whole BA moorings are permanently closed

Yes there are places at the Fisherman's and also on the 24 hour moorings near to there.

Alan,  which 24 hour moorings do you mean? The BA moorings are now closed entirely - see above.

It's the super exciting "guess the pub" time.

After yesterday's challenger, this one is super easy. And on my world lager tour, today I am in Spain (or the Philippines to be competely  accurate):default_smiley-angelic002:

thats diet coke if I am not mistaken

I could have said it was coke, (as I know it is not the velvet black stuff) but the comedic effect would not have been as good......

As long as I don't have to drink it I'm not bothered whether it is coke or Guiness. I'm not too sure my youngest would mind if it was Guiness either. :default_biggrin:

I shall try, thanks

Thats simple - it was your daughter, never yet known a young girl who didnt think about her figure, so diet coke or coke zero, if it had been a boy, it would have been a 50/50 over diet or full fat coke

Thursday 29th March

In complete contrast to the previous day it was a gorgeous morning at St Olaves.

20180329_081825.thumb.jpg.73fa3f3c1010b71af39f6f37b02158e7.jpg

20180329_081858.thumb.jpg.361b44ed2aed53145423975a3b64b66b.jpg

The usual morning routines and dog walking started my day, before sitting in the sunshine awaiting the rest of my crew to rise.

It was a long wait.

20180329_093014.thumb.jpg.58609ce44dab980a7288831bc5587472.jpg

Giving up I decided to head out for my run and by the time I had returned, low and behold everyone was up. Once I had showered and changed we could finally set off with another freshly made coffee by my side.

20180329_121147.thumb.jpg.75092d157519afd6c954bf6a38b003ca.jpg

We could have got under St Olaves bridge no problem but as it was so sunny we returned back up the Waveney.

To enjoy a longer cruise to the Berney Arms and onwards to Reedham.

20180329_135147.thumb.jpg.e31348ba43fa2d97be1e270e000c6775.jpg

Reedham moorings were, bar one boat, completely deserted,

20180329_165029.thumb.jpg.b2576739df181e69589056f4140ef98e.jpg

20180329_165111.thumb.jpg.518cad336b76cdb31ed1140a6c710773.jpg

so we moored up and headed out to the little shop for a couple of supplies before heading into The Lord Nelson for a quick refreshment.

20180329_150639.thumb.jpg.53f880fce2409fcd721931b3e1b47e89.jpg

20180329_162823.thumb.jpg.65f211ce535eefe769bb71ec176b44a8.jpg

It was around 5pm when I left the pub, filled with water and paid my donation before setting off once more, turning around back through the bridge and down the new cut following 2 other boats towards Somerleyton as the rain began to move in.

20180329_173652.thumb.jpg.6252eb7a6682789bf1e3d959c598ffab.jpg

20180329_174815.thumb.jpg.5fff16bea22e83df53cd55b5eb8c1d15.jpg

Once safely moored up again it was a quick walk before heading into The Dukes Head for further refreshments whilst the rain came down heavy

20180329_190528.thumb.jpg.0c567862a6ea2092f4af016311132ab8.jpg

and then we headed back to the boat where my youngest once more played head chef and I enjoyed the evening's dancing entertainment with a glass of wine before heading off to dreamland once more.

Enjoying following your tale. Love seeing all the photos. It certainly was a beautiful day until that rain arrived yesterday evening. Let’s just say it’s very loud when falling on a caravan roof! Have a great day. :)

Thanks SwanR. It really was. I was fortunate to have taken cover in the pub just in time to miss the heavy rain.
