kate docherty from glasgow. Posted 14 Dec 2004.
What were we like, eh? Going on our annual boat trip to Millport. We were about 8 years old. The ferry was huge. When we arrived, we got the local bus to take us to where the action was. We had a great time hiring bikes playing in the water etc. All a kid wanted was sea and
sand - we had it all that day.

The teachers sat on the shore watching every move then suddenly, they disapeared. Us kids thought nothing of it - we were having fun. Then, as kids do, we were getting bored and our skin was curling up with the water, and there was no sign of the teachers.

Then, after a while, tey all came back laughing,joking, falling around. Us kids never gave it a thought to them all being drunk until later years! LOL.
Aye, the great school outing definitley wasn't for us kids. but for the teachers to get together. And it was the nearest to a cruise I ever got. Kate
