Ant goes for a swim

Home » Blog » Ant goes for a swim

There are some things which can be described as above and beyond the call of duty......and here at the marina we seem to be faced with such things fairly often....like being forced to work on front desk with a whole basket of chocolate right in front of my nose...you know how it goes — the more you want to resist, the more you just want. Then there's the marina parties — where at least one of us always has to stay sober, and the remaining members of the team have to fight bravely to retain some sense of decorum whilst (slightly) under the influence. And then there's maintaining a sense of humour when all about you have lost there own.....and the list goes on. But this week Anthony is definitly awarded the prize for valour, by not only offering to go into the marina in his swimming shorts to find the end off the pumpout which had been broken and dropped in by a visitor, but also for actually FINDING it! And his reward when he stepped through the door, towel in one hand, fishing next in the other, proudly brandishing his treasure from the deep — we all burst out laughing....well we just had to, didn't we....... sorry Ant!
