Day 233, Scarf 233: On the Boat...or so we thought

Today Mum, Dad and myself were supposed to go out on the boat for the first time this summer. We packed up our gear and headed off in the heat. Dad swung that trailer down the ramp like the pro that he is, got the boat in the water (with a bit of a bang...something happened to the trailer) and then Mum and I patiently waited while Dad parked the car. When he returned we discovered that the boat just would not start. Dad tried all of his tricks but the motor just did not want to move. Feeling somewhat defeated we decided it was time to call it a day. Dad went back up and grabbed the trailer (after walking the 1 and a half kilometers back to the car) put the boat back on the trailer like a pro and then we were heading back home.

We had planned a beautiful lunch for out boat trip and did not want to just eat it in the kitchen so we decided to head off to Lion's park for our picnic. When we arrived we discovered that there was live music! A three piece band and three singers called "Company B" playing music by the Andrews Sisters, the Boswell Sisters and many more! It turned into a lovely, relaxing afternoon that happened by accident!
