When you get to the Norfolk Broads on the Hire or private Boat there is I suppose is a sense of happiness on being on the Norfolk Broads but when it's time to leave to go back home that makes us sad so how can we get over it? The only answer I think is living on the Norfolk Broads for the Summer and go home for the Winter? What your answer to that question to you all Forum Members.

I think you've hit on one of life's crucial questions for many forum members there, Andrew.

We get 'the face on' whenever we have to leave our boat to come home. The only solace for us is that we've usually had a great time and it won't be long before we're back on board. We're lucky in that respect.

Been back home for less than 24 hours after a fortnight's break and we're both having some serious river-wthdawal symptoms already! Smile

I used to suffer terribly with the last night/day syndrome when leaving the Broads.

NOT ANY MORE though  Smile

In my case the answer was to get our own boat, now when I leave, I leave with a spring in my step (Especially if astride the Tiger) knowing in a couple of weeks or so I'll be afloat again

Symptoms cured for me at long last.

For those not in my position - I do know how it feels and you have my condolences

When we hired on the last night Jill would sit at the bow hurling bread(with intent) at the ducks while muttering dire threats at me if we don't come back the next year.
Now the ducks starve, but don't suffer injury, and she says a cheery bye bye to Capt Matt, see you soon!
I wish she would talk to me in that tone.

Misty/Keith, so sorry I didn't meet you at the Meet.  Maybe next year?

BroadScot, reckon you're underestimating the cost of getting to the Broads!  At 250 miles (for us in Lancashire) from the mooring at Brundall at GBP 0.40 per mile for fuel and running costs that's GBP 100 one way!   Argh, but worth it!

I'm going to sound pretty smug here, but as I live an hours walk or 10 minutes drive from my mooring, I don't suffer unduly when I leave the boat. Smile  Living in Ludham, even if I don't go to the boat I'm still only a few minutes walk from the water, and even working with boats all day I don't get bored or fed up of spending time afloat (after all, at work it's very rare I go further than Horning Sailing Club or Horning Church Staithe, which gets a bit boring after a while).

You have heard the old saying 'Absence makes the heart grow fonder' well believe me it is the case with the Norfolk Broads, a visit now and then is fine but living here 365 days a year and the novelty or whatever it is soon wears off, believe me.

Well we've been here a year (after 18 months living in Norwich), and are just about to move to a different house in Ludham, albeit still within easy walking distance of Ludham Primary School (as my son's nearly finished his first year there and is doing really well - it's an excellent primary school that I'd strongly recommend to anyone).

The novelty hasn't worn off yet.
