Norfolk Broads - May 2011

John had always wanted to try a holiday on a boat on the Norfolk Broads. There was not much chance of getting Marwyn on a sailing boat (which is a bit like camping in a small boat) so we took a motor cruiser for a week. It was great fun and we were lucky with the weather.

Moored up snugly for the night in the north of the Broads, near Wayford Bridge.

The wildlife was great to see, though the Mallards were not so welcome - they think they might get fed.

The holiday was a lot of fun, it's a very restful way to travel, and a great way to explore the broads. We may well go again, possibly to explore the southern broads.
