Norfolk Notebook 11/14

Opposite the Elizabethan House in Great Yarmouth I showed yesterday is a ship called the Lydia Eva moored up alongside the Quay. She has quite a chequered history following her being built and launched at Kings Lynn in 1930 as a steam powered Herring drifter, and is now looked after by the Lydia Eva Charitable Trust, and gives day excursion trips off the Norfolk Coast. From where we were it wasn’t possible to get a much better angle on her than this. You can read all of her history here .

Very fine composition, Brian, and you have the venerable G10 performing magic.
Brian Walbey: Yes not a bad camera the G10, and a fine old ship.
it's a very interesting shot, I think!
Brian Walbey: You only think Elizabeth, of course it is smile
She has been well cared for Brian... fine shot.. thank you for her history....petersmile

How nice that she has been preserved in the right place Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Chris, I would have liked to go on board but it was quite expensive just for a look round if I recall.

I realise as the days go by with your Norfolk Notebook how much I missed when I used to go there regularly
Brian Walbey: Perhaps a short holiday back there is called for Lisl.
A Friday boat on Thursday. Very nice it is too
Brian Walbey: I couldn't wait until Friday because.................
Now that would be a a nice boat trip on a calmish day.
Brian Walbey: I guess it would Martin, although not for me I'm afraid.
She looks to be one of Great Yarmouth's star attractions Brian Did you go on a trip?
Brian Walbey: I guess she will get a lot of visitors but it wasn't sailing on that particular day.
A fine image with wonderful composition.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Mary.
