Zenia Ford, 24/05/2016
A huge thank you to everyone for the wonderful birthday boat trip for my husband. We were warmly greeted onto an immaculate and beautiful boat. There was one brief rain shower but that arrived, most obligingly, as we were in the cabin enjoying our fabulous and simply delicious afternoon tea. It was a perfect way to celebrate and thank you all for making it possible.
