Lost Voice Guy I used to teach watersports and taking disabled people for a nice sail or paddle in the canoe was always the best. They always had a big smile on their faces and it put one on mine too. It's nice you went with Robson, he's a nice guy.
Thanks Lee for a great day. We got some great shots even though at times the boat had more water in it than my bath!
Wowzer! I’ve lacked the confidence to get back on a boat agin. Good for you, sailing is so freeing ❤️
So lucky you are to film with Robson Green, one of my favorite actors!
