deebee29 Posted October 6, 2014 Share Posted October 6, 2014 We set off at 7am. for Stalham on a fine September morning After around 5 hours and a good uneventful journey we arrived at Richardson’s Marina at just after 12 pm. Although our pick up time wasn’t until 4 we wanted to check on the size of the fridge before going to Tesco. We always travel early and always prefer to kill time in Norfolk instead of at home. Anyway we were told that our boat was ready and we could get take our gear on board and get our familiarisation and trial run out of the way before the rush started then do our shopping and set off at our leisure. We were shown the boat in great detail but didn’t need to have a trial run as the instructor was happy with our boating knowledge and the amount of boats we have hired over the years. After collecting our shopping we set off on a very pleasant run down to Ludham Bridge where we had planned to spend the first night. We got a space before all the free moorings were taken, unpacked, made a meal (we tend to eat on board as mum who is 83 finds the meals in the pubs are usually too big for her ) then my brother & myself had a walk up to the Dog for a couple of pints, as a bonus found it was warm enough to sit outside. A great start to the week.......... To be continued David 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
