St Patrick’s Day

Well St Patrick’s day was great gas, the weather couldn’t have been better and
 we decorated the boat in true tacky style as you can see in the pic below.

We had a great bunch of friends around for Irish coffees and even a few Guinness. Would you believe that on St Patrick’s Day we has 18 people on a 34 foot boat!

A full house for St Patrick’s Day.

My Mum & Dad flew out to spend the week with us and it was they brought 
the good weather with them. 48 Hrs before they arrived the canal was frozen! But this pic was taken in twenty decrees (c). You couldn’t ask for better weather now could you.

The good weather meant that we could enjoy our lunch out doors as the temperature 
crept up to just above 20Deg (c).

The wonderful Collette, our French teacher and a lovely lady.

The wonderful Collette our French teachers joined us too. This lady did so much for us and we owe her so much.

My Dad talking to someone who thought it was Burn’s day!

My Dad talking to Rex, I think someone told Rex that it was a fancy dress !! Rex was Ex British army and lived on a boat in the port.
