Larry’s Birthday – Mario’s Marina
BB Waterfall and Canyon 149
We took the shuttle launch from our marina to Mario’s, we were immediately greeted by this little chap trying to sell us nuts at an eye-watering price. I asked for 30 pence worth just to be convivial. As quick as a flash his fingers were moving like greased lightning, price three pounds. How long did it take me to convince him that that really didn’t constitute the amount I really wanted to pay. His slightly bigger sister told him he’d blown his sale and off he eventually went muttering like a pro.

Soon the party was in full swing. Bear had the important task of distributing a next round to the boys.
