A morning out on Horsey Mere (Photography)
A week ago today (25th August), the wife kids and I were treated to a nature cruise on Horsey Mere here in Norfolk.  Horsey Mere is one of the most northerly broads here in Norfolk and is accessed via the River Thurne.  I've not heard of a Mere before but I gather is means standing water.  In 1629 the term Mere and Marsh were becoming interchangeable but in 1876 the term was heard to mean permanently under water.

The trip started near the old wind pump and is sold as a nature tour.  There wasn't a huge amount to be seen on this particular day ... well there may have been, if there was I managed to miss most of it.  I did however manage to grab this photo of a Kingfisher.  What a beautiful thing!  I've never seen one before so was delighted to see that I'd managed to grab a photo of it.

We saw a crane or two and a good few dragon flies of various makes and models but I didn't manage to grab a photo of any of them.  I did however manage to get a good few photos of some of the wonderful sailing boats which can be seen on the broads.

The main thing that struck me when I saw this boat under sail was the reflection.  I was quite pleased with the outcome.

It was a beautiful morning as you can see.  We were sheltered from the breeze so things were quite toasty when out on the open water.

Navigating the sailing boats is pretty easy when out on the open water, but can get a little tricky on the narrow sections of river.

<center>![69737488_10158726477676978_3997049569572552704_o.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmPqgyagdVZKpHkrbzfJnteoepAXU2tChpfiZHuBYMVqRJ/69737488_10158726477676978_3997049569572552704_o.jpg)</center>

There are a few of these lovely old thatched buildings surrounding the broads.  They may not look much but these are some of the most desirable properties in the area.

In summary if you're every in the Horsey area I'd recommend taking a tour out on the broads.  Our trip was  via [Ross' Wildlife Boat Trips](http://www.wildlife-boat-trips.co.uk/) and was brilliant.  Even the kids enjoyed it!  Ross let them all had a go at the helm and he had a great sense of humour.  Will definitely visit again in the not too distant future

I've been on a boat trip on the Broads, but can't remember where it was. You were lucky to see a kingfisher. The only time I've seen one was a flash of blue when out running. I ought to go out again round here with the decent camera. I'd hoped to see more wildlife when I did the crypto walk.

I get so distracted by the coast I forget the beauty that is just a few miles inland.  I'm contemplating investing in a kayak and some lessons.  A great way to explore the broads and get some exercise in at the same time.

The trip had to be great, it would be great to sail for a while in the waters with the family, a good escape from reality

I'd love to have the skills to take one of the traditional broads sail boats out.  I'm amazed that skippers get these big sailing boats down such tight channels.

Thanks for taking the time to comment.  It's certainly a trip I'd like to take the kids on again - the owner of the boat was great with them and it was a joy to watch them each take time at the helm.

I am afraid of deep water so sailing would never be a thing that I would be willing to do :) But I do like photos of sailing boats and sea in general :) 

It looks like the weather was pleasant and the day was perfect for a family trip.

Thank you for sharing and have a lovely day!
