Pride of Bristol trip to Lundy

Our trip to Lundy on board the Pride of Bristol was a little more exciting than we expected. It started with a wonderful trip down the Avon under the suspension bridge and past historic spots of Bristol. As we moved down the Severn the Force 7 winds caused an agitated sea. So much so that one of the lifeboats thought we had capsized and set itself off! It was later retrieved by the RNLI in Ilfracombe. We were unable to dive but I personally had a great time being allowed to steer the boat part of the way back to Bristol and having a tour of the engine room. Many thanks to the crew.
