Heres a question for your Forum Members as I've been wonder if we could turn the clock back as to having a Boating holiday that's to say Playing cards/Walking/ Reading a good book/Listing to the radio/Going to a Pub playing Darts or going out for a meal and having a few drinks of course and not forgetting doing some Fishing when it is in season or having a Dinghy for Rowing or Sailing. As to this modern day with Boating DVDs or Videos watching TV Soaps and other things that has changed as to us going on a Boating holiday would any one agree with me on this subject.
Andrew.

Good old fashioned holidays--  got to be Hunters yard and hire one of their yachts.  No engine to worry about, quant pole if the wind dies, real back to basics enjoyable holiday without a microwave/TV/DVD/Playstation.

Moor up at the pub, go back and enjoy a bottle of wine and a game of cards, peace and quiet -- perfect.

I can believe I said all that!! I'm a stinkie and proud of it, but given the right weather, couldnt be better.

for us andrew the broads are an old fashioned holiday, we go as a family and stay together, we take cards and board games and generally enjoy each others company.
That's part of the magic i think.

The kids take thier psp's and ipods and we occassionaly watch tv in the evenings but on the whole it is about being together Smile

Andrew,
The type of break you describe is exactly my idea of a perfect Broads holiday.
The radio, especially radio 4, has much better pictures than the telly!
Incidentally, people may wish to make a note of the following programme http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/factual/opencountry_20020601.shtml

It takes years to build trust, and it only takes suspicion, not proof to destroy that trust.

Hi Andrew,

Yes, just the way we do it - and have done for years with our children from as young as 3 to their (now) young adulthood. They have never hankered after any of the home entertainments... far too busy and occupied for that!

For us it has always been sailing boats, (it adds to the possibilities of activities for the youngsters) but I am sure similar principles can work on a stinky with a bit of imagination!!
