As you know it was a glorious day today (for most) so I headed down to the boat with my dad for the first trip of the season. We set off about mid-morning, down the River Itchen onto Southampton Water then up the Hamble to fill the tank up. After leaving the fuel barge £135 lighter but 2 free choc ices better off we then headed off to the Solent for a blast in the flat calm water. Finished off with lunch at the Waterfront Pub at Shamrock Quay (very nice chips!). It really was a lovely day to be out on the boat, great fun and a little bit red on the forehead, should of brought the lotion.
I attached some photos and a video of today.
