The "Carry-On Cruising" Party - 5th September 2009

An Invitation We had 43 "passengers" aboard the S.S. Lynch for this party and the Official Programme (right) gave them an idea of what to expect!
The Programme The Buffet Menu Meanwhile, the Buffet Menu (left) told them what was on the table to eat, while everyone danced the night away to the Disco!

The following day was not so much a case of "Carry-On Cruising"; more like a scene from "Beyond The Poseidon Adventure"! And our life-boat was most definitely not sea-worthy - although we did notice someone had made inroads into the "Emergency Rations"! Nevertheless, amazingly, everything was back to rights by the following evening. Checkout the complete photo-gallery Here >>

The Captain's 60th Birthday Celebrations February 2012

The big surprise on my Birthday was a Champagne Afternnon Tea at nearby Fanhams Hall - oh, so very "Me"! Thanks, Dad!
War Horse  Programme Cover Extract from War Horse Programme On the Saturday, thanks to Lesley & Peter, I was treated to a matinee performance of "War Horse" - a truly emotional experience!

In the evening, it was a wonderful Dinner at Gables Restaurant, where we were joined by a number of surprise guests and I was presented with a rather special cake, conceived and executed by dear Andrew! Checkout the complete photo-gallery Here >>
