12th August

I woke up at 6.00 and didn't want to waste our last morning so went and sat on my ‘perch’ to absorb the tranquility and sunrise

C3BFD6D1-81F6-486B-85C2-6CF6EB6077DF.thumb.jpeg.08820518f34db228654385d28c8c6b9d.jpegWe left Stracey Arms at 8.00am and basically had the river to ourselves. It was utter bliss. The weather was glorious.  This was the first day where there was no timetable to stick to other than getting to the marina by sometime in the late afternoon. We had no plan on where to go so we ignored all the speed limits and pootled very slowly back towards Horning.

The river was so still and very calming.  Because Selsie hasnt seen much of the Broads so far, it was a special moment seeing his reaction as the broad opened up before us, similar to when he first saw Breydon.

12th August continued 

We decided to see if there were any moorings at Ranworth but didnt hold out much hope and sure enough it was full. We debated going to Salhouse and walk to the pub for lunch but in the end decided to go back to the marina to top up the fuel tank and get a pump out.  As we wound our way back to our mooring I patted Luna and thanked her for looking after us on this massive adventure for us novices. Selsie said she had been brilliant and hadnt missed a beat. He was just starting the reverse into our berth and the engine cut out! We managed to get her in using the ropes. We couldn’t believe it but Selsie said he thinks it was a dirty injector. He got it to start again thankfully.

We worked out we had cruised for a total of 18 hours and had used 2.27 litres of fuel per hour.

The holiday was amazing. We have learnt so much and cannot wait to get out and about again. I know we wouldn’t have pushed ourselves to go south this year so thank you Janet Anne for giving us no choice! It was brilliant and we met up with old friends and made new ones. Special hugs to Hazelgirl and Timbo’s Gracie (hope the ducks are happy in your butterfly room Gracie ;)

HI  Sam, So glad your "mission" was so successful,  We saw you depart from the marina but had gone home by the time you returned. Have very much enjoyed your blog and the trip sounds to have been  an absolute joy. We are at home at the moment and likely to remain as long as the weather is as dreadful as predicted. However when we are on board do feel free  to pop round again. We enjoyed our chat it was very nice to meet you.
