Hi All

As it's all horrible and rainy outside I thought I might pass this happy holiday tale on to you, that Richard and I had three weeks ago when it was summer! (can you remember the sunshine?)

Day 1.  It's Monday, so I phoned the bossman up (cos I know he has a rare day and night off from his job).  'Get yourself down here and we're going chugging for a day and a night'.  

10.30 am, up turns Richard, so we embark on Josh with many cans of beer but, more importantly, fresh bacon and rolls, etc.

W'here to?'  I ask.  'Well', bossman replies, 'first I would like to go to the New Inn at Horning and have a word with Lee.'  'Righto.'  So off we chug.

I'm now down in the galley (ha ha) cooking (or rather cremating) bacon and getting the coffee going (spot on).

So eventually I emerge and we have a super brekky at 2 mph.  

Now I must warn you that Richard has a sailey thingy implanted in his brain, which means even on a cruiser he tends to zig zag all over the river, so I gently remind him (pretty please) can we get back on the proper side of the river.  Can't print the reply, as this is a family site!  Anyway we finally get to the New Inn at Horning which is looking splendid as normal and Gus finds us a slot in the dyke.

So in we go,  have a pint.  Richard talks his business stuff whilst I'm outside watching the world go by.

When all is done I ask bossman where to next?  He says 'I think we ought to go and check out the Bridge at Acle and see Phil and Vanessa as they have just recently took over the pub', so off we go.

Superb chug, in blazing sunshine.  Given up trying to keep Richard on the straight and narrow as he is determined to use all the river.  

On the way down we meet the skipper of the White Moth, Kim, so stop alongside to have a natter (White Moth has been moored nearly alongside Josh for the last week, will put photos on later).

Finally arrive at the Bridge.  Blimey!  it really now sparkles inside, in fact it's all too clean so needs a bit of use.  So bossman and I are sitting in the corner having a quiet drink when Phil (the manager) comes over and says 'I recognise you pair' (I didn't know but he's a member of the site).  We both felt like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, but had a super chat with them and it seems they are determined to bring the Bridge back to its former glory.  

I hope so, cos it is such a super spot, but, as usual, it's only the members input using the place that will really count.

ps  They did ask, please, for constructive criticism.  Our first one was:  if a family goes in for a meal and spends a fair amount of cash, could it offset the mooring fee?  They did say they would look into it, so that's a start.

This is the first instalment, will be back with more.  I will just check (ha ha) with Richard's solicitors if I can say what happens next............

Only joking!

Gill says we're like a couple of naughty schoolboys let loose together!

Roy, God bless his little cotton socks, has failed to mention that your's truly managed to have a "gravity incident" while stepping off joshie after leaving the Lion, resulting in a two hour nap afterwards. Then one of us getting totally "ratted" at the New Inn. Now I'm not going to point fingers, but it wasn't Roy. Aplogies to Gus and Dick, and possibly a Blonde from Harlow.

Now where were we,
Steady on Rich we aint got to the Lion yet  Evil Grin

So off we chug from the Bridge,where to Bossman i ask?

Hmm i would like to see Sid,so yes its off to Thurne,i am now convinced Rich needs new specs,or he just cant steer straight or both.
So i settle down with a can or two on the stern seat (that way i cant see the ensuing mayhem).
We finally arrive and moor up,lots of sailey thingys about all having a good time.
Afternoon Sid we cry,Sid seems to turn a little white,has he met us before,but we are soon having a super chinwag about the Broads in general and the beers are slipping down a treat.
We step out side into blinding sunshine and a wall of heat.
Now i have seen over the years many ways of getting onto boats but,
for sheer entertainment value Richard is my winner.
A sort of one leg in one leg out backward roll with a half sumersault with added body twist.
As he is laying in and out of the boat i ask where to now mate,back to the New Inn he sort of lisped through clenched teeth.
So i straightned him out as best i could propped him up at the Helm and off we go again,
to be continued------

So off we go ,im at the helm,i think Richard is still alive its hard to tell.

Its early evening and its so spot on,nice and warm great chugging weather.
well after a couple of hours we are back at the New Inn.
Moor up in the dyke,im happy just sitting there and watching the world drift by.

Bossman comes back from the dead,fancy a pint no ta ,so off he goes into the ether.

I get me book out and have a good old read,
Its called How to be a Sailey,or other ways to be Sad

Evil Grin

Have some nice interludes chatting to Holiday makers,mostly telling lots of fibs ,saying its allways this sunny in Norfolk.(cross fingers).
Been a long day so its about me sleepy time so crawl into me pit ,
more to come,

I am reasonably sure that book is called, 'How to be a Saily; or other ways to be sad that Stinkies are sooo ignorant of how to be happy' It's just that there is a bit of Albatross poo on the cover.

Pauline,
well yes.

picture the scene, me a poor innocent stinky all tucked up in his bunk whilst a naughty sailey is out imbibing.
Say no more.
Once im asleep thats it ,so the next i know its 5 am,
a super morning ,spoilt only by the snores of you know who.

So up i get make coffee ,undo the ropes and chug off,now thats the odd thing as soon as we are under way,said snorer stops gives a happy hmm and falls back into nodland.

One hour later we are back at my mooring and im fishing,2 hours later Richard appears from his bunk and sayes thats odd i thought we were in Horning.
I reply dont you remember chugging us back at 1 am.
