We saw them coming down the Ant on Monday, I misread their flag as being French! Sacre bleu! 

Ray we did the same. Thought it was a French invasion fleet!!!

about 2:30 there were 3 or 4 going towards bramerton and 1 already at bramerton having a picnic. Gave us a nice wave as well. 

They were not taking it easy either.

Sorry was busy driving.  I'm sure someone will catch them on digital data media tomorrow. Film was so much easier to say 

The boat moored at bramerton was an immaculate wooden beauty. I've got a plastic fantastic and even I was impressed:default_eusa_dance:

Saw just one leaving Oulton Broad this morning, tide against them! Perhaps being from Holland and being used to tideless canals the crew didn't factor in the tides. However, hats off to them, at least they are doing it, yours truly only ever thinks about it!

All looks very innocent, but this is just how Admiral De Ruyter's 1667 raid on the Medway started. I shall be on my guard.


Maybe they are out to capture the TS Nelson as flagship of the river Yare.
