Rob and I enjoyed our time floating about the Broads, here's a few pics

Horsey Mere wind pump. The beach is about a mile away, we saw sandmartins, a couple of skylarks, a linnet and two grass snakes - one was quite large- but alas they were squashed flat on the road. We also saw a swallowtail butterfly. At the beach we were able to catch glimpses of seals in the sea. We also spotted a man sunbathing completely starkers and was he burnt raw by the sun

Part of Great Hoveton Broad nature reserve - it was like stepping right into another world, very peaceful but I wish there had been some seats to sit on to enjoy the quietness

There was lots of geese and ducks, swans and grebe's on the Broads many still had their babies with them. The herons seemed very elusive this year but I did manage to catch a glimpse of a couple. On the Mon night we had moored up near West Somerton staithe in an isolated spot. Rob woke early and was on deck to enjoy the early morning sun and was delighted to hear a cuckoo.
