Following a very interesting Dinner Discussion about The Seagull Trust in April was a Canal Cruise.

First is the assembled company – couldn’t get boat three passengers into the picture – think they’d been washed overboard.

Second is the good ship St John Edinburgh with Captain Conway aboard while the third is of the winner of the ‘best nautical hat competition’ as adjudged by Seagull Trust, the Fearless and Dreadful Captain Conway. Not many nautical hats in pics 1 and 2 I know but when donned they did range from the debonair panama to the 10 gallon sou’wester to the antique breton cap to the colour coded Laing option of which sadly no photographic record is available. And the 4th pic is tying up at the end of an enjoyable trip before repairing to the Bridge Inn.

36 passengers on board three vessels – good craic bringing the 15/16 Dinner Discussion series to a close! But we’ll be back in September!
