I’m not sure you can paddle the length and breadth of the Norfolk Broads – breadth only!?!?!? Anyway, this time last week I was paddling a canoe – true(!) – up and down the maze that is the Norfolk Broads, ducking and diving the pleasure boats save for one incident of mis-steering (Mandy!), which saw me do battle with boat fenders!
Moving swiftly on, as I did, it’s a beautiful part of the country, dotted with pretty villages and proper quaint country pubs to slake a canoer’s thirst. Little did I know, as we headed home through the local city of Norwich, that it was on the very cusp of launching its inaugural wine festival.
The festival takes place throughout September at different venues in and around the city (click here for details). A good excuse for more canoeing adventures to which end, if you fancy it, check out The Canoe Man’s website here – our bushcraft weekend was a lot of fun and we spotted a kingfisher, lots of herons, a marsh harrier, barn owl and water snake!
