Hiya Richard, Bonnie and crew!

Hope you have had a good holiday and the weather has been kind to you (we've been keeping an eye on the forecasts and I think you've had some good days?).

More to the point, hope you have had lots of lovely meals, a fair few beers and some good banter with nice friendly Broads folk and visitors, other than this p**t at the Berney Arms. There is no excuse for such bad language infront of children. We had a decent meal and a few beers when stopping the Berney Arms overnight last year, but your story has put us right off for any future trips.

The guy certainly needs his head examining - perhaps he underestimates the power of messages between "our kind". At his peril I say! We know we have members the length and breadth of the country, all regular boaters, so "b*****s" (thats Bubbles, not what you thought!) to him!

Enjoy the rest of yuor time in the UK, it was great to  meet you all at Stokesby. Hope Neeta has enjoyed it too...

Toodle pip for now,

Karen & Mike

cheers!

Dear Skipper of the mightly Lapwing,

you forgot to mention that the "token yank" (or is that the Karaoke Queen) was too afraid to come out of the cabin during the tirade for fear of her life!

cheers! Nita

Karen,

No problem with the name spelling.  I usually end up as "Anita" or "Juanita", or just "hey you".

I'll take most forms well.

cheers, nita

Ciao, Nita

btw, I forgot to mention that we went past the place on our way back north some four days later.

Every 20 feet between the arms and the windmill have been posted large pink signs stating, "moorings strictly for pub customers only".

Bonnie got in touch with the BA, who were very apologetic concerning the incident. She asked who owned the moorings in question, but they were unsure, but didn't think the windmill moorings were owned by the pub.

They did say however that our phone call was not the first that they had received about this place, and that they would be sending out a Ranger.

I believe that the moorings slightly up stream and in front of the windmill are not part of that "gentlemans" territory but are the R.S.P.B.s or similar organisation and mooring there is free of charge.

Richard, I hope the incident didn't spoil your holiday.  That sort of thing can leave a nasty taste for some time.

Does anyone know if the Berney Arms has been taken over recently?  Without wishing to generalise, it sounds like the actions of someone who has moved in hoping to make a profit out of holidaymakers, and has no understanding of or interest in the traditions of the area.  If so, the sooner they realise their mistake and b****r off themselves, the better.
