Saturda9th August 2008 - Horning Salsa Party, BBQ and  boat trip Ref:2008/3

Thirty five guests joined me aboard Lady Martina in two sessions for a trip out of Ropes Hill Dyke and along the River Bure on the Norfolk Broads. Along Horning Reach passing trip boat "Southern Comfort" as Skipper David Broad is dancing with Gosia and, of course, watching the helmsman closely!

The route followed was along the Bure and past the village of Horning and then back upstream and into Blackhorse (or Hoveton Little) Broad so that they could see what a "real" Norfolk Broad was. (ie a large lake formed by medieval peat digging rather than a tall guy with little hair)
The party theme was Salsa music and dancing and the happy revellers were dancing on the cabin roof, for'd and aft decks under the watchful and sober eye of myself. ( I had to say that because of my new Broads Authority responsibilities!)
