A Few Days Cruising



Autumn on the Norfolk Broads and a few days rest. The colours are really out now(1) and a common sight is the kingfisher. Easier to spot now the leaves are coming off but this one didn't mind posing for Sheri across the river.(2) Defence works continue in various forms.(3) here they're piling steel barriers. The river needs to be kept navigable and the Broads Authority vessel was cutting back the overhanging branches. This could be a scene from winter (4) but it's not snow, just foam from the drainage pump. Don't know if the boat owner wanted to get out or not but the hull should be clean!(5) Sheri makes the mistake of putting some crumbs out of the window. (6) Before long the word has got round and they're coming from all sides. One bird you won't often see on the ground, a kestrel perched high in the tree (7) and as we cruise along (8) the autumn colours are lit up by the rainbow!

Second week and another few days spent locally. Another rainbow greets us at Whitlingham. At Woods End the evening mist starts to creep in at this time of year(2) Swans take to the air from the lake(3) whilst seagulls comandeer a yacht. Must be pirates! Suprise visit from Emob friends Paul and Nurse who're holidaying on the coast. Good ol' Satnav!
