Sunday 15th  June 2008 - Fathers Day boat trip Ref:2008/2

Everybody slept very well in the house and boat and we all took turns through the Heronshaw bathroom as I dispensed hot drinks and then made the breakfast. We first served the children with cereal and toast in the kitchen/diner and then distracted them with TV again as the adults ate.  It was a splendid breakfast of cereals and toast again and everybody was satisfied. I then opened my nice cards and presents which included some butter fudge and tickets to the NCFC vs Spurs football friendly at Carrow Road.


Once we had all got prepared, I took them all on a boat trip on Lady Martina, first going upstream to look around Blackhorse Broad and then on to Salhouse to buy ices from the Ice Cream Boat;  and then downstream to moor up at the Ferry Inn, where I treated everyone to lunch at the buffet there. It had been very nice going on that boat trip in this way and everybody enjoyed it immensely. By mid-afternoon, Debbie and Della had to get off to their partners and Daniel drove Julie and the children off home
