Something Has Gone Missing!

Recommended Posts

Something has gone missing! but what and where?

I'll start by saying it is, or was, on The North Broads. Any ideas?

The sun comes and goes, but it hasn't gone missing. Perhaps missing is not the best word. The thing I am thinking of is just no longer there!

Democracy?

I was thinking of more of a physical thing or object!

Is it the famous light in the old boat moored in a chalet at Potter? I couldn't see it when I went past a few weeks ago.

Shop at Acle?

Whilst the shop has closed, I believe the building is still there, so not what I was thinking off.

Last time I went past there a couple of weeks ago it was still there, but someone had changed the bulb to a newer style. Again not the one I was thinking off.

It may have gone for now, and I'm sure on the 15th is due to get even worse, but come Winter the peace will return, so sorry but not the thing I'm thinking off. I will add it is a physical thing, not a feeling or sentiment.

Is it the old boot on one of the posts on the lower Bure?  We went past there twice at end of May but I didn't particularly look for it

Thinking about it, I don't remember it being there when I went past either. I believe the BA often stick an old boot up there from time to time to keep up the tradition, so It will probably be back. Something that has almost become part of the furniture of The Broads scene is what I'm thinking off. It's not a piece of furniture by the way :-)

Aah but the 15th is when many get the strimmers and lawn mowers out and start cutting back their patch of turf in preparation for the open season, thus shattering the peace and quiet on the 15th, he says rapidly back tracking.

I looked for it a couple of times too, maybe it finally dropped into the drink!

Too cryptic for me, not what I was thinking of!

I originally said the boat with the light at Potter but then went onto Facebook :facepalm: and the first thing I saw was a picture from yesterday morning of the boat with the light at Potter, hence the edit.

OK, so lets start to narrow it down a little. North Broads above Stracey Arms and below Wroxham bridge. That should make it easier :default_norty:

I can't help with your question but I do think there's a few on here that may have lost their marbles :default_norty:

Since the 1970's a few 'things' have gone missing, on the River Bure between Stracey Arms and Wroxham bridge. Jack Powles, Ernest Collins, Smiths, Porter & Haylett, Southgates Main yard, Wilds, Ferry Boatyard and Chumley & Hawke, to name just a few of the old yards that are gone and sadly missed...

Mostly replaced by quick build, ordinary looking holiday homes or private moorings, a great pity really.
