I still haven't finished telling you about our holiday in Norfolk at the beginning of September so we're back there again today.
The day dawned bright on the Tuesday so we decided we'd head for the Broads and hire a boat for a couple of hours. There's quite a few different marinas where boats can be hired from, we chose Wroxham,
We had a short holiday on the Norfolk broads when Daniel and Eleanor were very young, I think Eleanor must only have been about three or four and she can't remember anything of it now so she really enjoyed having a go at steering the boat herself and she soon got the hang of it.
I've never seen so many herons in one place before, they could be spotted all the way along the river bank.
There were swans too, and different types of ducks.
This salty sea dog enjoyed his time aboard. The life vest was not his, he was just wearing it for the photo.
We could have gone on a boat trip rather than hire a boat ourselves but we definitely did the right thing, it was much more fun.
About half way into our hire it started to rain. It wasn't a problem though, we just pulled the roof across to keep us dry.
The rain soon passed by, which Archie was pleased about as he could go back to sticking his head over the side and watching the other boats go by.
It's a pity that this ice cream boat was closed for the day.
There's some beautiful little riverside cottages, lots of them even have their own mooring for their boat,
There's some beautiful larger cottages too.
Number 7 on my 50 Before 50 list is Take a boat ride, so that can now be crossed off.
This little trip has whetted Mick's appetite for a weekend away on the Broads next year. Nothing's been decided yet but we may very well end up back there. I won't be complaining.
