On the boat at last

First, apologies to our visitors last month from the UK, Josie and Stef. We didn't manage to take them out on the boat once while they were here....there's always the next time you visit!

Ah well, this weekend was perfect boating weather. The Cliffes descended on us from Sydney; they're moving back to ol' blighty in November so we're going to make a concerted effort to make sure they enjoy their last couple of months.

After a quick picnic in a local beauty spot we all managed to squeeze on to the Red Dragon for a couple of hours whizzing around the lake. Because there were so many little ones on board I decided to take things easy in case there were tears, but I could sense Charles was bursting to have a try - and things certainly hotted up a tad when he took the wheel ! Boy racer or what? The kids loved it of course, and he made sure that both Gina and Sue got a proper soaking at the back of the boat.

Thanks to Anne and Kel for letting us have an un-invited stop for cake on their jetty - an idyllic spot for a drink and a kiddy comfort break......sorry Kel.

Here's some pics of our day on the water.
