    Saturday July 5 my wife and I enjoyed a short trip on the Henry Frederick James on the river Blyth, invited by its crew.
    They told us about the history of this lifeboat , detailed what the present engine is like and demonstrated the horn. We are impressed by the effort it must have taken to restore this boat. Impressive too is how this boat must have been operated when it went out to rescue people.
    Thank you for a wonderful afternoon!
