Yare'll Never Guess What We Did Today
Seeing as the sun was out (a rarity on a Bank Holiday weekend!) we decided to avoid the Jubilee crowds and paddle rather than walk to the park for Jarvis' afternoon walk. We packed up the paddling kit and headed for the River Yare which flows through Earlham Park on the edge of Norwich.
We had a lovely paddle to the park, it was great to escape the crowds, and it certainly didn't feel like we were on the edge of the city at all. James loved watching the fish and plants beneath us as we floated past.
Mummy wasn't quite so keen on him leaning out the boat but Daddy kept a firm hold on the back of his buoyancy aid. We were soon at the park, with a welcome chance to stretch our legs and for Jarvis to have a run around. We got a few funny looks in our buoyancy aids; everybody was thinking we'd taken health and safety to the extreme until they saw our mode of transport.
With Jarvis tired out, it was time to get back in the canoe and head back. With the help of the current we were soon back at the car and ready to head home for tea.
