Although I've now lived in Bristol for almost seven year there are still lots of places and things to do here I have yet to try. I think having a child helps you want to explore some of them even more have the time as you feel like you are doing something for them (even if you are enjoying them just as much yourself!). The Mathew was one of those things we had spoken about sailing on 'one day' and never quite got round to it so when Visit Bristol asked if we'd like a little trip then we were really keen to give it a go.
We stopped for lunch first before boarding at The Stable which is a restaurant on the harbour side that serves pizza and pies. mmmm pizza...
And then it was time to set sail!
The sun started shinning just as soon as we set off and it was lovely to just sit back and take in some of the pretty views along the harbourside. Tom and Wilf headed up and down the ladder to the deck (I tried to follow them up there once but it was a bit too much for this pregnant mama!). We took the hour long ride which was perfect I think for the attention span of a three year old, the hour felt like it went really quickly too actually.

Thanks for Visit Bristol for treating us to a sail on the Mathew!
