Today we had the pleasure of meeting Jbx5 (was it John?) and a his beautiful boat Noah's Ark :default_beerchug:

We saw Jbx5 on our first day just east of Reedham, he called out, and i asked who he was but could`nt hear his response. He replied on my thread and told me, so now, if i sea Noah`s Ark, i`l know who it is. 

And yes, his name IS john.

Good to meet you Ray with your lovely boat Dakota. 

Sorry we didn’t get chance to have a chat Neil, noticed you could have had another week on Lightning as she was patiently waiting for her next crew at Brooms this afternoon.

Hmmmmmm, i was`nt aware of that. I know we`ve had a bit of sad news about one of the owners, but not sure who was aboard this week. Would have been lovely to have turned around and gone the other way.

Hi Hazel, which boat are you on,?, had we known, we would have slowed down and said hello. 

Hiya, we had San Marino 2 from Richos, stayed North so probably saw loads more than I realised, Ray I think we say you two a couple of times, what a beauty of a boat, we did comment every time we saw it.

I think once you were moving and another moored up but can't for the life of me remember where, the whole week is now sadly a blur now I'm sat back at my desk. Wasn't it a fab week for weather though mostly, yeah yeah a bit chilly in the mornings but when you are used to frost on the outside of a tent we can handle a chilly morning on a boat lol

I'm so depressed I can't say, I do wish we'd been able to come and chat at some point we just passed like ships hahaha, I also then couldn't face the quiz on Friday after the 8 hour drive home.

Hopefully next year we can make a firm plan.  

My new screensaver. Restful and brings back memories of my favourite early morning walk last week :)

Love it. We were on that boat (Lullaby) a couple of years ago. Fond memories, even though my Mum had passed away just a few weeks before. That holiday was just what we needed at the time. So peaceful. No engine!

I've got some pics of Lightning on my phone, and keep looking at them. Now I have an idea what smokers feel like when trying to give up. I can't get another fix for 6 months.

 . . . . . . . We're not back afloat til March, and i'm having withdrawal symptoms already. 

That’s precisely how I felt when we finished our last week on Moonlight Shadow in April.  The only way to cure it was to buy a boat.  Norfolk Lady is coming out of the water later this week for antifoul, hull polish and wax and some other bits and pieces (that have been planned since we bought her).  I anticipate a severe pain in the wallet, but it is worth every penny to know that we can have our weekends away every couple of weeks and spend our holidays afloat, too.

Regrets . . . . . . . . . . a few.  Mainly that if you have an ambition, it needs to be addressed before time slips by and it is too late.  We should have scratched the itch years ago.  Hindsight and all that . . . . . . . .

I can think of one or two contributors to the drone and dashcam threads that may not be so keen!! Perhaps we would need an etiquette. Fly one NBN burgee if you don't mind your picture taken, fly two if you do mind and don't want to end up pictured on the forum :default_smiley-taunt014:

So we would have to pay twice as much to keep from our boats being shown on NBN. That's bribery! :default_eusa_naughty:……….   :default_biggrin:
