Valentines Special

Book in advance and send me 10 reasons why you love you partner and I will put these reasons into love notes in little cork bottles, your partner will think you are taking him/her out on a romantic boat trip round Mersea, when in actual fact he/she will discover your love notes have been scattered in cork bottles round the creeks for him/her to discover, like 'message in a bottle'.  If you have planned on showing your partner just how much they mean to you and plan to propose marriage, then that last bottle he/she discovers can be an extra special discovery.   You can continue the romance for a further hour and have a picnic out on the water too.  £75 per hour.
