This years annual camping trip to Dartmouth with a load of other families went surprisingly well considering the weather.
Mrs Nasher joined myself and the boys this year for her first camping trip, and was well and truly christened with 60mph winds two nights, and a couple of inches of rain one night. Still says she enjoyed it though.
Start Bay ignored the winds as usual and we had several days where the sea was completely flat right in the bay, but the trips back to Dartmouth in the evenings did get quite interesting.
The smaller Nashers also got to use their SIB quite a lot, cruising up and down the beach and taking all the other kids for rides. Plus taking the adults in and out from the various RIBS anchored off the beach.
I found the SIB and engine stowed very nicely on ‘The Nashers Revenge’ the only downside being the need to blow it up with the stirrup pump when we reached the beach in the morning. Must invest in a 12V air pump.
The little Johnson 4.5 seahorse didn’t miss a beat, and used so little petrol it appeared to run on air.
Pic 1 – Look how flat that sea is despite a stiff breeze.
Pic 2 – Getting ready to launch ‘The Nippers Revenge’. Our Friends 4 year old(smallest in pic) appeared as if by magic for his ride each time we went near it.
Pic 3 – Off on an adventure, Middle Nasher at the Tiller, Little Nasher navigating in the bow, and their friend Connor sat on the tube wondering how safe he is.
Pic 4 – Back safe and sound.
Must show Mrs Nasher how to adjust the resolution on her new camera.
