Lazy Afternoon

“Hubby and i enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea on the blue swan… plenty of parking at the pub and arrived to very friendly staff… the boat ride was quiet, informative and relaxing and wish it went for longer than 1 1/2 🙂 (only because i was really enjoying it)

The food was simple but nice and plenty for two people.

Hubby even got to drive the boat for a few minutes”
