Sunny Norfolk Broads

JollyDays Supported Holidays had a wonderful time in sunny Norfolk.

We arrived on the Monday, mid afternoon and looked around our bungalow and explored the garden which led us straight to the broad at beautiful!

No time to waste, so off to a pretty pub for dinner situated on the river.

Tuesday was packed full of fun on the broads. First off we went for a cruise in a motor cruiser in the morning. Our experienced skipper (Anita) pointed out the wild life as we went along. We were lucky enough to see several herons and even a marsh harrier. In the afternoon we went canoeing and even had time to go sailing. Ted was the captain and really showed us a good time. In the evening we visited Norwich to see the night life. Luckily we found ourselves a karaoke bar and had a good laugh. Also we all had a boogie.

On Wednesday, John took us for a full day cruise and even allowed us to drive the cruiser, under his expert eye. We stopped for a picnic and a walk through the bluebell woods. We were fortunate enough to have a small boat pull up beside us offering ice creams.....what luck!! As the weather was so good we had a BBQ late afternoon. In the evening we decided to take a trip into Great Yarmouth, where we spent a late night in the ten-pin bowling alley, while others may have decided on an early night in front of the tele. Well done to Mary.......she won the second game!

Another beautiful day on Thursday. Off to the steam railway for a trip in Sheringham where we stopped for another ice cream as we sat down by the sea. The return journey made you very nostalgic as the steam blew over the fields. A curry night had been decided upon, and we took another short trip into Norwich. Afterwards there was a pub stop to have a drink and another ice cream.......

A sad farewell was given to the bungalow and the Norfolk Broads on Friday late morning. But that isn't the end.......JollyDays Supported Holidays are never in too much of a rush to go home, so we stopped off in Southwold for fish and chips and a stroll on the beach. Poor Kerri managed to get a little wet as she wrestled with me.......better luck next time Kerri.

And still that was not the stop was a beautiful setting, sitting outside a pub with our picnic by the river in Nayland.

Finally we had to say good bye......but we hope to see you all again soon!

Our thanks have to go to the great people at the Nancy Oldfield Trust for having made us so welcome....thanks Robin, Anita, Ted and John.
