a northern waters cruise

10 days on the fine craft Stella Genesta sailing the northern waters of the Norfolk Broads is a good way to relax. No internet, no phone, no e-mails. Just sailing, crosswords, and beer. Old haunts visited included Horsey Mere, West Somerton, and Hunters Yard (3 times - much to Rev T's delight). Wildlife spotted included grey seals in the sea at Horsey, kingfishers on the Ant, and avocets on Breydon. Beers drunk included Adnams Bitter, Woodeforde's Wherry, and Greene King IPA - strictly for medicinal purposes of course.
