... They then changed it but Steve thinks this one is too big too – we will wait and see!

For a bit of fun Nanka asked if they could do some rowing in the dinghy like she did as a child. Sasha and Ella both enjoying it and Sasha was getting into a little rhythm with the rowing. When Steve returned he had a go taking the 4 of them out for a short trip.
