We spent last weekend in Ely in order to celebrate Gordon’s birthday (and check out The Boathouse restaurant where we’ll be going for my 60th celebration next week).
Ely is a lovely city which specialises in the vintage – so we fitted right in. Old buildings….
and vintage vehicles….
Gordon’s birthday dinner was a great success. We loved the food, atmosphere and service in The Boathouse and are really glad we chose it as the venue for the meal next week.
The best part of the weekend was to come the next day when we’d moved from Ely to Prickwillow on the River Lark. We had a wonderful surprise visit from my daughter Jenny, Ali and of course Seb and Josh. It was the first time the boys had seen the boat and they were so excited.
They tried their hand at fishing with their Grandad Gordon…
They had a go at steering…..
…and kept a weather eye out for pirates.
What a great way to end a brilliant weekend and we’re really looking forward to another visit or two before we move too far away for them to make a day trip.
