30 of us boarded The Boston Belle at Boston Marina ready to leave with the high tide at 10.00am. Once safely onboard we travelled down the River Witham through Boston docks and out into The Wash. Pete, our Skipper, provided a commentary pointing out places of local historic interest and help with bird identification if required.
Although conditions were fortunately calmer than forecast, the lounge provided a very relaxed, warm and comfortable area for those that didn’t fancy exposing themselves to the elements.
There was a bit of a stampede once everyone realised that hot bacon butties were available with tea, coffee or hot chocolate and some people settled into the lounge and there they stayed for the duration of the cruise enjoying the sights without getting too blown away.
Although wildlife was a little sparse or too distant for decent photography everyone reported having had a lovely, relaxed day with plenty of opportunities to catch up with their fellow club members.
