Priory Bay Picnic - Saturday 7 July 2007

In plenty of time for the diaries, a suggestion that we do a repeat run to
Priory Bay (Isle of Wight) again this year?

It has been a great run for all the family & friends in the past and details could be posted as we go along.

Tentatively pencil in one of the first two weekends in July i.e. Sat/Sun 1st
or Sat/Sun 7/8. Weather forecasts nearer the time should indicate which might be the better choice?

Some idea of past shenanigans

Kathleen & Paul

Looking forward to a good years boating with some excellent friends

I'll say yes to this one. I enjoyed last year. Not too sure if I'm off those weekends but as you say this gives time to sort things out at work.

By the way I am not sleeping on that beach again. That was the worst nights sleep I've had since I got swept off the side of a hill in my sleeping bag in a storm back in 88.

That would be down to Jimbos poor tent pitching skills had a pretty good nites sleep in my tent. But it was a bit wet the next morning and a bit windy on the crossing back.

You should have been in my 4 meter Sea Rider crossing over to Langstone in what seemed like 4 meter waves. Scariest time I've had on a RIB.

It was the first time I'd put it up (and it promptly fell apart, needing a return to the shop, afterwards)!

I've told you scout type people before - I don't do camping

Lol, I was only learning how to put the tent up, hardly ideal conditions to learn, and I was a little beveraged at the time!

And was it Pimms with nettles. I thought it was an Irish thing but later I think :-

a) Kathleen was trying to get us merry.

and

b) She was just trying to get rid of everything.

either way.

There was a few large bags of rubbish when we left.
