The Broads

I took a bus down to the Wroxham broads yesterday. You know, very cool, but the 2 hour boat ride was a teeensy bit long. Though I did learn a lotta fowl stuff from the tour guide (pun intended). Like the Greeve duck babies eat their feathers when they shed, and a whole lotta them, to line their stomachs. Then, when they start eating fish (whole fish, mind you), the bones won't puncture their stomachs because they've basically got a down lining. Huh. You learn things every day... and you learn useless things every day :)
The view from over the Wroxham Road Bridge. That boat on the right looked like the one I took my tour on,
and the tours left from the dock right there. 

pretty view of the Broads.

  1. I hope you took a sweater for your trip on the Broads! When I was 12 or so, my friends and I cycled to Ranworth Broads many times. One lad caught eels for his granny who gave him sixpence each for them! We could cycle all over then because it was wartime, no traffic on the roads because petrol rationing for civilians was ZERO!Your Mom & Dad ate supper here last night.
