23rd March 2010
The river swings close to the main Yarmouth to Norwich road and then away again. The banks are lined with tall reeds but we can see over them from the fly-bridge. We can see where they have been harvesting reeds for thatching with sets of sheaves of reeds standing to dry out.
We pull into the moorings at the Stracy Arms wind-pump as there is a nice little shop there. The shop is still there but is being extended so it is currently closed! (Should reopen by Easter).
We stay long enough to cook a late breakfast and then continue on up river.
