  1. It sounds like an amazing trip and I was very impressed with a ‘Mermaids Purse’ which I had never seen before. How cold will the water be? Will you be able to paddle in it, or not allowed because it is a trip? Will be looking forward to seeing the pictures of your experience.

  3. Thanks. Our day went very well. We had great fun.
    No treasure though 😉 but were glad not to meet any pirates either.
