Looking out, Looking in; Lapwing
Now, I know nothing about boats. Well, maybe a bit. The ferry here to the island is horrible in rough weather and breaks down a lot. On the other hand Lapwing, the boat in the care of Fleur and Gren is graceful, comfortable and fun to be on. Even if it does take a lot of up keep and sounds like a London bus when under way. Apparently she came from Doncaster way but she sits upon the Thames very happily I can tell you. No doubt Fleur will come along and fill in the details.
We dined aboard her, drank champagne aboard her and sailed aboard her. What more does one want?
