Norfolk- Boats, Trains & Seaside
We were so excited for our first boat trip on the Norfolk Broads. We got comfy on our cruiser boat and set sail. What a fantastic trip we had, seeing so many lovely cottages, boats and wildlife that lived on the Broads; graylag geese, herons and kingfishers.
After going under Ludham bridge, we stopped for an ice-cream, soaking up our wonderful surroundings.
We headed to the bowling alley and enjoyed some friendly, yet competitive games of bowling. It was nail biting stuff with some great strikes and high scores.
We put on our life jackets and set off on our adventure in our canoe boats. It was great fun working together as a team, navigating our way around the lake.
Once back on dry land, we went on a lovely nature walk spotting more of the local wildlife at Barton Broad Boardwalk. A wonderful afternoon in the sunshine.
Another beautiful day dawned as we took our seats on board the sailing boat. We all had the chance to put up the sail, but as the weather was so nice there wasn't enough wind! Luckily the boat had an electric engine which took us to How Hill where we had a delicious ice cream at Toad Hole cottage.
A great afternoon was spent in Great Yarmouth, at Merrival Model Village. We saw lots of amazing tiny buildings and village scenes. Some of them were so life like.
We couldn't wait for our trip on The Regiment Steam Train. We arrived at Holt station as the stream engine pulled up; there is no smell quiet like it. Enjoying our ride on the comfy old-fashioned carriages, riding alongside beautiful scenery.
We never miss a photo opportunity!
Stopping off in the seaside town of Sheringham we ventured down to the beach and dipped our feet in the chilly sea! We couldn't come to the beach without enjoying a traditional fish and chip supper.
We visited the spectacular hippodrome circus. What a fantastic show, seeing so many talented performers from dare devil dirt bike stunt riders to amazing acrobatics! A real treat.
Another day was spent on our luxury motor boat, cruising down the narrow river. Once in the open waters, we all got a turn to drive the boat. An experience we will never forget.
