Wells Next the Sea - September 05


Dave treated us to a day out from Wells, a couple of dives on an Iron Clipper ship and back in time to catch the chip shop. The Sea was flat, the sun was out and Ken didn't eat all the food - what a day! There were short slacks because it was very springy but there was no need to return in the dark.
