Celebrating on The Broads with Herbert Woods

A couple of weeks ago we did one of my favourite things, spent the day out on The Broads in a Picnic Boat from Herbert Woods. Hiring a boat on The Broads is a Norfolk right of passage and the perfect way to celebrate anything, so when my Mother in Law asked for ideas to celebrate my Father in Law’s 65th Birthday I immediately thought of a boat.

East Anglia Transport Museum

The East Anglia Transport Museum is another new find for us this year. Unlike some of the other places we have visited for the first time, this one we hadn’t even heard of! This is really sad as I genuinely feel like I have deprived L of a few years worth of fun. Simply put, we love it and if you are looking for a fun day out over the summer holidays I couldn’t recommend this more.East Anglia Transport Museum

Summer at Bluestone

I cannot tell you how excited we were to be invited back to Bluestone. We had a fabulous time when we last visited Christmas 2016 and couldn’t wait to see what it offered in the Summer months.Bluestone 2018

We have been to Pembrokeshire a few times and it is a beautiful area of Wales, an area we are rather fond of, but boy is it a long way from Norfolk!! We broke our journey up on the way down with an overnight stay in Newport, this was great as it meant we didn’t have to leave our house at the crack of dawn and we got to arrive at Bluestone nice and early and most importantly ready to explore.Bluestone 2018 Continue reading Summer at Bluestone
