Summer days are meant for soaking up the sunshine with friends and family, drinking bubbles, relaxing and … boating! If you live in Norfolk, you’ll probably be familiar with the Broads. It’s this huge network of waterways. It’s very popular and especially in the summer because you can hire a boat for the day (or longer) and go meandering down the river at your own pace. You can do a bit of kayaking or canoeing, moor to a patch of grass to bask in the sun or to a pub for a lazy lunch or you can also sail to the ice cream boat for a treat. It’s really quite a fun day and it’s not even that expensive, especially if you’re a group.
Richard’s family was in town so we hired a boat from Broad Tours to go and explore. We left from Wroxham and went all the way to Malthouse broad where we moored for a picnic before slowly making our way back.
While we were on our boat, I spotted lots of holiday cottages with floor to ceiling windows, manicured lawns, wooden decks with sun loungers…. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? I’ll be back!
