I’ve had the privilege of sampling the fayres offered from the galley in Malanka before now. Legendary is a good description

Morning Grendel,

I am taking Judith 5 over from you tomorrow, solo too.

Thanks for all the photos. I have been on her many times before but always lovely to get a reminder.

i won't be going far, probably:

Horsey, Deep Dyke (stay a night at each), motor round Hickling and West Somerton. maybe through the bridge and moor at Irstead if I can get in ( I love the peace of that church).

Grendel ,who was collecting the mooring fee at Horsey ? I suspect not Derek Applegate who was sadly not in good health last time I was there.

Best wishes

Charles

Today was a busy day, 7am start, down to wroxham, through the bridge and on to potter, through that at just a shade under 6 foot, then on to candle dyke. After changing to Pauline's boat we then sailed to west somerton, brewed a cuppa, then sailed up to the pleasure boat where we had our evening meal. (I had a most excellent suet pastry steak and kidney pud.) Then it was a sail back to where I had left Judith 5 on candle dyke, just around the corner from martham boatyard, ready to hand back in the morning.

Final awakening on the boat, this was the view that greeted me as I opened the curtain.

So, this is not the end, I still have a ton of photos and videos to upload from my cameras when I get home, so expect the thread to get picture intensive from here on. The photos so far have been those I took on my tablet,.  With 4 digital cameras and 2 video cameras also to hand, I did get a lot of pictures. Videos are limited to yesterday's morning cruise down from Coltishall, and of course wroxham bridge.

there may be a glimpse of a kingfisher in one of the videos, as I saw one, but it came up the wrong side of the boat for the camera.

Wroxham bridge and wroxham

 

 

well that concludes the videos, probably best with the sound turned off as I havent edited them, so you wont want to hear the engine and me singing.

Singing, what singing? I hear no singing!

 

 

Perhaps I might if I turned the mute off!

day  5 saturday dawned, and it was cruise in company day, this went well apart from 1 boat that decided to overtake 3 others right on the corner by the swan as we came up, breath in everyone. I have noticed that 1 of my cameras has a smudge on the lens, please excuse this, s that I too could dress ship, Malanka's boathook was borrowed and the mount tube of my telescope was called into service to support it. as we passed the ferry inn, something unusual in pink was occurring. we passed water rail moored up.
