Hi Guys it's probably 15 years since my last visit, I'm trying to get a rough plan in my head for a route and can't remember the sort of distances we managed last time we came.

We will be picking a boat up at Wroxham next Friday for a week. We don't have anywhere in particular in mind to visit so are totally open route wise. We are coming to relax not rack up the miles.

We are hiring a small sailing boat to drag round for the kids to mess around on so it would be nice to moor up for the afternoon or night on a larger broad or somewhere safe to use that.

Last time we came (pre kids) our daily schedule looked something like this:
We did most of the travelling in the morning, moored up early afternoon,  had a bit of lunch, went for a walk to explore the local area returned to the boat for our tea (if we didn't get diverted to the pub) did a couple of hours fishing then went to the pub or had a few drinks on the boat.

What sort of mileage should I be looking at for 3-4 hours?

Any suggestions of routes, good moorings where we can use the boat / fish which are close to interesting walks / local amenities / a pub gratefully received.

Oh we are also hoping to pick up a few geocaches along the way if that makes any difference

Thanks in advance.  Confused
