My husband has been selling some unwanted extras that came with our car - a dog guard and a rear step which had to come off when we had a tow bar fitted. On the profits we had a nice day out on The Broads. We visited our boat at Potters Heighnam to bail out the rain but we have to sort the engine out before we can take her out. So we went on to Hinkling Broad to have lunch at the pub and explore the straithe. There was quite a wind by then so we were glad not to be sailing out on the Broad itself and contented our selves with a walk round the boat yards and the village mooring area.
The yards and moorings have several old boat houses some of which were thatched plus a bewildering set of cuts and dykes for moored boats. Chatted to someone repairing his dingy and to one of the boatyard owners but for a summer holiday period it was not crowded at all and seemed quite laid back.
By the afternoon the sky cleared, the wind dropped and the sun made the drive home rather hot. We are trying various B road routes home and got a bit lost - but we did get to see Bernard Matthews very large turkey processing factory down some side road in a little village somewhere in Norfolk!
