Tuesday Morning.
Crossed the Bridge to get the Day Boat from Phoenix, £91 for 5 Hours, leaving at 9.30, heading for Horsey Mere to see how the Wind pump restoration was progressing. The Electric Day boat was really very quiet and faster than I thought it would be,(so watch your speed!) although performance tailed off a little through the day, but at no time too slow. In the last few years whenever I have crossed Horsey Mere it has been quite rough and once a thunderstorm, and then it clears up, today was no exception to the rule and some would have difficulty finding the mooring going up, and the entrance to the river coming back.
     The Mill restoration now looks nearing completion but at the moment only the ground floor is viewable.
Coffee and cake of course, then continue our journey to Hickling where we all had lunch at the Pleasure Boat.
definately worth a visit.  we were back at Potter Heigham at 2.30, and the bridge gauge was reading 6' 3".
     Then it was on to Womack, where we were surprised to find a mooring at the Staithe, walked to the village, explored Staithe road I had not been down before, presumably there was at one time another Staithe there. Getting near eating time, we asked at the kings Arms what time they started serving food, and the answer was all day, so after the children had spent time in the playground we went inside to order, everyone was pleased with the food and train enthusiast grandson was keen to see the model train going round which they started for us.
    Watched the new version ofSwallows and Amazons DVD, better than I had feared!
