Have you ever been on a Paddle Steamer. Often they were used for Ferry Services like the crossing from
Grimsby to Hull. I mention this on this forum because a lot of people from the Midlands would go to
Cleethorpes for a day trip or holiday.
Lets hear your experiences.
Best wishes
Gerald.

Only paddle steamer I was on, steamer probably not the correct term, was along the Mississippi in Memphis.  Now paddle boats in Perry Hall playing fields I really know something about.

Hello
It is now thought that Ed has set sail for America on the Titanic.
He will do anything to get away from Mr Mears and his Blackboard Ruler.

In case of any problems we have sent the rowing life boat from Fishguard
out with two crew. They should reach the Titanic in 15 days.
Keep blowing the whistle ED, if your throat gets sore go suck a zube.

The boat is making good progress but no news from Ed. He said he would post everyday.

I've been on a couple of paddle boats but not steamers. These were in the states. I was one of a team of hospital staff that took a couple of groups of ill children to Disney. We would travel from the car par park to the park across the lakes.

The nearest I've been yo one here is on the lake in Drayton Manor. My son and daughter want to row the rowing boat we were on. They were 8 and 10 years old. They were fighting so much we ended up in the path of the big paddle boat. I was so glad to get off.
