|Norm and his son Chris|
and what WAS the occasion, you ask? Norm Williams' 80th Birthday celebration, with the entire extended family in attendance from as far away as England, Oman, Seatlle and Michigan. What a wonderful way to build family memories! The Williams have been vacationing at Bondi for over 60 years, and we could not be happier to have them here with us again.
The S.S. Bigwin was chartered for a private cruise through Haystack Bay, which was followed by a catered dinner from The Butcher's Daughter under a tent at the cottage.
You don't have to go quite this far to enjoy an outing on the Bigwin -- Bondi has discount vouchers you can use at Dorset for any of her regularly scheduled cruises.
Just enjoy some of our pictures from the day.
|Rob and Sherry -- fresh from the Ascot Opening Day (seriously)|
|Norm's son Andrew made sure there was a corkscrew on board!|
|Kristin, Sherry and Rob, the 'royal wave'|
|Taffy reporting to Dave and Megan that the boat is ready for departure|
|up to 32 people can cruise on the S.S. Bigwin, which sails almost|
daily from her dock at Dorset
|Brian was out on the water with his camera, looking for different angles|
|leaving Bondi Bay. 'write if you get work, guys!!!'|
|and coming home past Lumina Point|
|what a beautiful day to be on the water on this silent (electric) ship|
|the Bigwin is as long as our entire dock, and had to be moved by hand into|
position. Brian and Taffy supervised David veeerrry closely for this
|she's a heavy boat. David was up to the task!|
