They very kindly provided us with shade and a great location for all the kids to jump in.
The little ones literally spent 5 hours swimming and playing in the water.
As for the big ones?
Well, the last time we also took the Red Dragon around and it meant that I wasn't able to "socialize" quite as much as I would have liked to as I was busy taking the kids out on the boat - while Mrs B had a great old time on the catamaran.
This time I decided that a few "shandies" were in order so we drove around instead. It was my turn on the catamaran and although I have a few bruises it was quite an experience - I couldn't believe how fast it was. I thought I may lose my shoulder at one point (as it has a nasty tendency to pop out at the most inopportune moment) but I hung on in there and had a great time.
