People took advantage of the clear skies and warm weather by cooling down along the county's picturesque waterways.
The River Wensum in Norwich was a popular choice for many, with visitors hiring boats and canoes to explore the city yesterday.
And it is likely to remain that way for the rest of the week, as temperatures are forecast to remain above 20C until Saturday.
Sonja Davies, co-owner of Buccaneer Boats, along the River Yare in Brundall, said the good weather had significantly boosted business.
'The sunshine makes it ideal for boating,' she said. 'People can sunbathe and there are plenty of places to stop for a bit of lunch along the river.

The good weather is expected to continue throughout the morning today as the mercury reaches 24C.
But a cold front will see some very light showers make their way across the county during the afternoon and evening.
Tomorrow is forecast to be dry throughout the day, but will be slightly cooler at 22C.
Friday will be dry during the day but showers are expected to return during the afternoon and into the weekend.
Meteorologist James Wilby, from Weatherquest, said temperatures were above the 20C average for this time of the year.
He said: 'It is due to an area of high pressure sitting over Germany and that is leading to light winds and sunshine over southern England.
'There will be no significant shift in those conditions, but a cold front this evening [Wednesday] will see Thursday being slightly fresher.'
