Messing about on boats

Posted on 2005/06/25 22:38:17 (June 2005).

[Friday 24th June]
Went out to sea in the afternoon in my Dad's friend's boat. My Dad's friend is called Nick, as is my Dad, which prompted the standard Python-esque "Is your name not Bruce? That's going to cause a bit of confusion...". We were only out on the water for about an hour and a half as it was beginning to get pretty choppy. Still though, it was an experience - it was the first time I'd been properly out to sea in a boat this size - there was just room for the three of us really. You really experience the sea at first hand in this sort of boat - all the waves to their full extent and so on. I haven't been seasick since I was a child, but I was feeling a little queasy towards the end of the trip today, and, being from a family with a long naval history, I was slightly embarassed by my sense of relief upon returning to dry land. Oh well, I guess it is just a case of getting used to it!
