Back at home after a wonderful weekend afloat , left Cambridge Friday morning after just over a hour and a half we arrived in Hoveton . Quick bite to eat from “O Crumbs” sitting on Granary Staith

We have owned Cerise Lady for in excess of three years now and a fortunate side effect of the no overnighting afloat ( for non live aboards) is that since we are currently having day trips afloat is t

Back home after a relaxing four nights afloat , I travelled up early Friday so as to collect a dingy and outboard we had purchased (thank you Ray ) and also to pop into Stalham staithe to get the bill for our engines services which we used Marine Transmissions to carry out for the first time  , and speaking as I find , they were very reasonable and thorough and they also cleaned them extremely well .

Gently motored up to Sutton where Katie would be joining me later after her hospital shift , she duly arrived at 21:30 much in need of a glass of Merlot , the next three evenings we didn’t travel far at all flitting between Neatishead and Gayes staithe as we simply wanted to hanker down from the wind or relax , which we certainly did.

Today the sun actually shone , gave me a chance to shampoo Cerise Lady before a leisurely pootle via Wayford bridge to the wet shed , clean up and head home , whilst we were enjoying a coffee before departing the wet sheds frequent visiting kingfisher alighted on our bow rails for five or so minutes .

Have a great few days afloat both of you :) 

We are on our way now making a last minute dash to the boat to winterise before we get locked down. Not planning to go out on the rivers, though we may be tempted...

Water levels at Ludham bridge still too high?  These high water levels seem to becoming the norm - I hope not.

I see a neighbour of ours is a neighbour of yours this morning


Last year we had a 6 week period where the levels were too high .

And yes , they’ve departed now , with a friendly wave , what a beautiful boat !!!!

Had an excellent meal in The Sutton Staithe Hotel , far surpassed the last few meals we have had there (it’s changed hands) , only gripe is they have started using square plates and putting chips in a basket , peas and coleslaw in little buckets , why can’t they just use a good old fashioned round plate for the lot !!

Oh , and sachets of Heinz mustard , thankfully I had some Colman’s on the boat  so grabbed that .

Back home now , woke up early and was extremely gusty , glad I had used springs .

Eagerly awaiting end of lockdown part 2 already !!!!!
