Today we cruised to Horsey to charge the boat battery and went to see the seals at the beach. Then messed around after lunch on Horsey broad sailing up,down, across and gave Robert some more experience.

We saw this day boat from the Bridge pilot office at Potter go through the middle of the yellow coned obstruction. He was well and truly beached.I made sure he rung the boatyard but when I asked what he was thinking he said he was going around the yellow post as instructed. I told him that only applies to the main river turn points. The whole broad to play with but he went straight through the middle.

Relaxing at Potter tonight. View to the bridge.
Took the pic quick and got back in the cockpit before a gybe was a threat.

You look to be having a fabulous time. I'm enjoying reading your updates and seeing the pics - they perfectly show your holiday experience and the atmosphere of a sunny Broads sailing visit. Thanks for sharing.

We heard from family there's been big thunderstorms in Yorkshire. We are sat now watching one pass by at Upton. Windy here but we are on the edge of it at the moment.
Pic is Potter bridge this morning.
