By Jon Coile

Their refurbished vessel, the Griffin, throws them a few curveballs, and the trio encounters different unforeseen occasions, calling for artistic and eccentric recommendations.
More than a trifling boat journey, Adventures within the Ditch provides a wealthy, hot, and private tale of kin relationships.
