Priory Bay

Well we have just returned from a week at Calshot, the highlight of which was our first trip to Priory Bay on Friday which lived up to all expectations. I have to say that it also restored my faith in the youth of today. As it was our first time there, despite all the warnings, I took my eye off the boat for 2 minutes(or was it 3??) and we were aground on the beach. There were a bunch of lads who everyone was steering clear of. Obviously just finished school, average age 16, drinking and a Ghetto Blaster the size of the Eiffel Tower. I asked them for some help to push the boat back which, believe me, wasn't an easy job and no problem they were all there and got us back in. Even noticed one nudge his mate for swearing in front of my wife. No doubt they all wear "hoodies" but just thought I would try and redress the balance!

They were just a bunch of lads, Why so surprised?! So after your massive generalisation did you proceed to patronise them to death?

If you search hard enough I have started a few threads on here. You can be abusive to each one if you want. Nice to know you are showing an interest.

C'mon Nodders, hardly abusive. More of an accurate overview, I'd say.
