This isn’t very much of a throwback and I intended to blog the whole time we were away but I ended up enjoying the week way too much to be able to spend time writing anything.So last year my parents took me with them to the Norfolk Broads on a boat which they hired from Richardsons we had such a good time that before I left Cambridge my dad had already booked the boat for this year!I have always enjoyed being outside ever since I was little so I really enjoyed being on the boat last year and was looking forward to getting back on it again this year.I think you could explore the Norfolk Broads time and time again and still enjoy it! We went the week before the schools had half term which mean everything was a lot quieter than it would have been the following week. It also meant taking photos and finding places to moor the boat at night was a little bit easier!Luckily we didn’t have any rainy days so we were able to have the roof of the boat open as well as get off and explore a few of the sights along the way;On Monday we drove down to the boat which was in Stalham, we had a few issues as we were meant to drive down in the camper van however after my Dad discovered there was a petrol leak on it we had to transfer everything across to the car! Once we arrived in Stalham and my Dad had done all of the necessary things – collecting paperwork, lifejackets, and being shown all the important bits on the boat – we were unloaded everything out of the car and on to the boat for the week. After we had unpacked everything we went to Tescos to grab more snacks, food and a few other necessities. We were then able to set off towards our stop for the night called How Hill. Once we arrived there we got off and had a little walk around to explore.
I spent a bit of time driving the boat this year (after wrestling my dad out of the captains chair) which persuaded me to hire my own boat for next year! I am already looking forward to becoming a Captain full time and showing my Dad how its done!Here is a little video I put together from this year…https://youtu.be/2jI1hNplgAU
