harbour cruises

In these days of increased environmental awareness we must all do our bit, and none more so than purveyors of the traditional ‘harbour cruise’. This modern-day example consists of a rowing boat powered by a helium balloon, which is estimated to reduce emissions by up to 110%. “We limit trips to one person per boat per trip per time,” said a spokesperson, “and typically you’ll expect to cover about ten metres every hour. You can stay out there as long as you like – give us a call on the mobile when you’d like to be reeled in.”

Question for study groups
Do you ever feel like you are sitting in a quite literal rowing boat powered only by a quite literal helium balloon?

Can we get away with posting holiday photographs with not particularly in-depth commentary and a study question? I wouldn’t like all of our increased efforts to be derailed by a lapse into trivial content.
