Very familiar sight on the waterways of the north Broads and I do believe they have a few boats including an electric one.Now, a charity on The Broads is offering a day out on the water with free boating trips for cancer patients or those receiving palliative care.
I do wonder why more boating is not made available to all of society, as it seems to work such wonders with most other people.......bringing out the best in people and all that.
In fact, I would imagine some rehab clinics, or rather patients from such clinics could benefit. Several reasons for that really. Firstly, it is scenic, beautiful and relaxing...most of the time
Secondly, it is so cut off in places, that the isolation might help people to rid themselves of certain toxins that may be being abused. Just a thought but it can offer therapeutic benefits.
I gave up a thirty year addiction to tobacco on the Norfolk Broads and I was only able to do it for such reasons.
I went out on the boat for the best part of two weeks and got through the withdrawals....which any ex or current smoker would confirm sucks big time.
