Boats on the Norfolk coast.

Norfolk England.

I just thought I had better mention that.

I had a weekend at Blakeney on the Norfolk coast, amongst the pictures I took were a few boats, I thought you might be interested.

First lot were at Morston, just a small staithe on the same channel as Blakeney

Not a lot of boats moored at Blakeney and it was too cold the day I wandered about to get out on the marshes where the small boats are dragged up on shore.

But Juno was there, Juno is a fairly new steel built boat modelled on the Thames barges that used to trade in the Thames estuary until WW2. The real ones are made of wood, but I can underswtand why this one has been steel built, it is perfect for the waters on the Norfolk coast with its shallow draft.

Brancaster staithe, still a working quay, fishing boats, sailing boats.

A great place to explore.


It was that miserable fine rain, that gets in everywhere, I spent the time with a cloth wrapped around the camera, taking it off to take pictures.



Sea Dog, Cockles and Mussels.



It looks like it has seen better days.



I love this boat, something about its lines.

Burnham Overy Staithe, in Medieval times the port was on the river burn in what is now Burnham Overy Town (now about three houses and a Church) but the river silted up and the port moved to the coast along with the village.
Richard Woodget master of the Cutty Sark retired here, close to the village of Burnham Norton where he was born.

Now it is mostly pleasure boating.







A Bowie fan?



I had to take this picture, I have one of these on top of my narrow boat as a tender.

Punkie,

Thank You.

I have done a quick search and found numerous photos (and a few others of interest).

Also found a great link for "Fishing Boats of England" (great, as You can do look-ups by Registered Name);

An ex-pat now living here in South Australia describes the English climate as 'three months of winter followed by nine months of bad weather'.

I was talking to a friend today while standing in the carpark of the marina, we were in bright sunshine, with rain coming down on us.
