Cold and oh SO COLD. Really nice to have the sun shining though. A few
showers and a couple of squalls with hail and then towards the end good
weather with some wind and lots of sunshine.
Sunday morning we held a thrilling Sunday Service on the decks of the
boats. An Open Air Church in the peace of South Walsham Broad.
a call to the Potter Bridge Pilot, we decided against our plan to
lower masts and go through Potter Heigham Bridge. Instead it was to the
River Ant we went, lowering masts for Ludham Bridge, where lunch was
taken. North then to Barton Broad, where we were hit-literally-by the
first of those icy squalls, before drying out nestled in the trees off
Barton Broad. Did we know Nelson learnt to sail here?
much more pleasant sail on Barton before we left for a mooring at
How Hill for Games and Lunch. Then after that back down the Ant and
under Ludham bridge, where some chose to test the water temperature!
and thence to Upton Dyke, where more tested the water temperature- It
to Tropical Wind's gearbox, and games ashore were the morning
activities, followed by excitment of shooting under Potter Heigham
bridge. Not going to tell how much clearance!!
Hairy sail for some on Horsey Mere and a night mooring in our secret
place. Can't tell you where obviously. And what a nice day to walk to
the beach, apart from the northerly wind. Another sail on Horsey before
we go, then turn left for West Somerton for the night.
again with the wildlife. After a brief stop to see a very nice man at
Martham, it was back under Potter bridge for lunch and pick up stores
the rest of the week. Head for night mooring on the staithe at
after a stop on the broad for a spell of dinghy practice.
winds were light, so best speed to South Walsham for more fun in the
dinghies, or should I say in and out of the dinghies!
Our theme for the week was Lessons in Love,

Jesus CAME, was born as a humble child,
grew to a man, lived as an example, was falsely accused, cruelly
and rose to life.
Jesus COMES, because He dwells within the
believer, to help become more like Him, and to empower us to live the
victorious life of his resurrection.
Jesus WIlLL COME again, and all will know
and be forced to submit. He will be King and Judge and those who have
chosen to follow Him will go to be with Him for ever.

will, which will be best for you. Mean what you say;
Trust Him, and watch out for the devil.
