Nice relaxing Saturdays

We arrived back from a cold Barcelona yesterday evening after eating and drinking far, far too much. Though Barcelona was cold it wasn't too cold to explore the labyrinth that is the Gothic Area, a wonderful place of tiny back streets crammed with tiny shops and Tapas bars or tapes bar as one said...hehehe
OK a heating update:- The central heating still has a slight weap on the feed to the bathroom radiator but I can live with that.... So after waking this morning we thought it was a fartoo nice a day not to go to The Robber Button. Arriving at Great Haywood Marina the sun was out and there was a definite feeling of spring in the air. It was decided to take TRB out and have bacon sandwiches and big mugs of tea moored up somewhere. So here was are moored at Tixall Wide, a coal fire burning away, Mrs EB sat in front of it reading her Dean Koontz book, I am listening to Miss Marple on BBC7, there is a large flock of black headed gulls flying around calling and a flock of sheep bleating away. There is quite a strong breeze staring up and to be honest all is wonderful with the world.
I believe that either next week or the week after TRB will be pulled out of the water for that blacking job that is looming...


  1. Did you stay anywhere nice in Barcelona?! I am thinking of heading over there at some point this year....

  2. We stopped on Las Rambles at a wonderful hotel called Rivoli Rambles it wasn't the hotel we originally booked but one we were upgraded too. We walked everywhere and had a great time...finding lots of bars....

  3. Barcelona - that beats North Norfolk! However, I did spend an afternoon exploring the North Walsham and Dilham Canal so expect a string of posts plus photos on Capt Ahab.
