A boat trip with my family

The other weekend, my Mum and Dad brought my older brothers two children to the boat for the day. Pippa and Sam, both really wonderful children, very polite and well behaved. We had a days trip out to Acton Trussel. A lovely couple called Dave and Jenny lent us some life vests for Sam and Pippa (best to be safe rather than sorry)

They looked great in the life vests, and both took to the in seconds, after the initial shock that even big boats sway .....

We did two locks, and the one lock was whereI bent the propeller (grrrrr)

Ronnie had a go at the tiller and did OK, it is a lot harder than it looks and does take a bit of time to get your head around how it turns and moves through the water
