A nice day out on the river Wye running between Symmonds Yat West and Symmonds Yat East. Running commentary about the river as you go, is delivered by the Captain.

It was one of the hottest days of the year (so far) when we arrived at Symonds Yat, so a boat trip was the perfect way to cool down. There are two boats running at peak times, so I think trips are probably every half...More
