You may or may not have noticed that we recently went on our annual holiday. May not have noticed because I had a post scheduled for every day that week so it was business as usual; or may have noticed when I posted my Project 365 and mentioned that we had been on holiday.

Our usual breaks tend to consist of a cottage, usually in Scotland (and then usually the Highlands) but last year we went to Wales. This year though, it was a completely different type of break for me and something that I just knew wasn’t up my street (or boat…). We went on a weeks boating holiday on The Norfolk Broads. Now don’t get me wrong, The Broads are beautiful, but just living on a boat for a week… not for me (that’s a whole other post!). We were also holidaying with my in-laws…

We stopped off at a few places but as we were travelling across the expansive Broads, we didn’t make a full day of anywhere. It was nice to relax though, and J did manage to stretch his legs and have a run around when we did stop – getting him back on board the boat was a whole other story though! We started at Wroxham and travelled most places from Beccles to Stalham before heading back.

We travelled The Broads, we waved at other holidaymakers, we ate out, we got food in, we visited a windmill, met donkeys, played at the park, went swimming, and J got flapped in the face by a fish…

Here are the highlights of our holiday in photos!

(Before and after – the fish flapped to get away and got J in the face – he was fine, he was laughing after this – maybe because we were all laughing at what had just happened! One of the highlights! (Mean Mummy)

  1. Lovely photos, it's look like you had a great holiday, I do love Norfolk. I love the photos with the fish 🙂

  2. I would love to visit Norfolk, we've never been and it's somewhere both my husband and I really fancy. I really want to go on the Broads-your photos have made me want to go even more 🙂

  3. Well your photos tell of the most magical holiday but I get the feeling there may be another side lurking? Certainly it looks here like life on the waters suits you and the family. Thank you for sharing your day out with me on country Kids.
