Our friends Mark and Monica decided to host a boating day on the lake outside their house.
We all turned up in cars and boats and brought picnic food to share. We arrived in the Red Dragon and beached the boat on the shoreline next to the Scanlon house.
It was her 4oth Birthday and we had been hoping that she would make an appearance. We had made a Birthday Cake and put up birthday banners and balloons.
I have never been on one before and initially found the concept of needing to be attached to a thin wire with a hook a little disconcerting. I was very glad of my wire on quite a few occasions when I lost my footing and went flying through the air! At one stage Mr B, Paul, David and Simon tried racing us in the Red Dragon and found it a hard job to keep up we were travelling so fast!
