Naughty-cal Heads To The Broads Again

Recommended Posts

Naughty-Cal is now ready to head to the Broads. Just the small matter of four days at work to get out of the way first and then we will be on our way.

We go down to the Broads tonight or tomorrow morning.

If you see us on the rivers, give us a wave.

Regards

Alan

No. We are going on the trailer this year. Don t think the new dog is quite ready for the five hour sea trip from either Hull or Boston yet.

We never stop at Wells on the way down anyway. Prefer to do the trip down in one go. Usually stop on the way back though.

This time we will have the full two weeks on the Broads instead and the cost of the transport is only what we would spend in diesel anyway!

We are getting launched at Sutton Staithe but think we will be heading south for the first part of the holiday.

We are booked in at Pedro's in Acle for Friday night.

I seem to remember you saying she`s moored at Lincoln, when we`re there in just under 6 weeks, we`ll have a look out for her.

Meanwhile, enjoy the Broads.

Almost didn't have the best start to the holiday at dinnertime. Took Sydney for his dinnertime walk in the park and on the way back to the car to go back to work he was attacked by a loose bulldog.

It threw him around a fair bit but somehow Syd has been lucky and has escaped seemingly unharmed with no wounds. The bulldog must have just got a mouthful of fur each Time!

Time to relax at last. We are on holiday.

The boat is loaded up. We are showered and refreshed. So now it is time to wander around to Woodcocks for a bite to eat and a few drinks before we have an early night ready for our 6am pick up in the morning.

Alarm is set for 5am!

That's earlier then for work.

I could just do with a pint in the Woodcocks right now. 

Will give you a wave if we see you on your travels

And we are on the road.

Took the chance to have a quick scrub of the bottom to tidy her up a bit.

Just had the first in of the holiday. Idiot jumped off the bow after a swan. Still it cooled him down. 

He is now sulking because he is tied up!

I did wonder how long it would be after seeing the photo of him sitting on the bow earlier.

Turns out about an hour!

Obviously Norfolk swans are more attractive to him then Lincolnshire swans as he doesn't bother with them when he sits on the bow.
