Glad you enjoyed your trip Craggie, but to see the Broads at their best, the only way is by boat! :grin:

But he did get to the Pleasure Boat on Hickling, and I haven't managed that by boat for a very long time! :lol::lol:


Remember when the brochures say "will pass under Potter Heigham bridge" what they actually mean is

"will pass under Potter Heigham bridge, if the lowest tide in history occurs

during the pilot's operating hours in the week that you decided to come".

I was looking at next August and the lowest tides all fall outside of the pilot's operating hours

so I don't think I will get through next year!

Anyway glad you enjoyed your reconnaisance trip!
