An excerpt from Wind in the Willows

Nice? It's the ONLY thing, said the Water Rat solemnly, as he leant forward for his stroke. Believe me, my young friend, there is NOTHING - absolute nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing, he went on dreamily: messing - about - in - boats; messing----'

Almost all boats back on the Wey

A tight fit for Orion's Wey and
Thatwey in Lock 1 going out
A most successful weekend.  Six of the boats are back on the Wey after leaving Woking this morning.  Winter Lilly moors in Woking and Leo No2 is staying until Wednesday - the last day I can go down Woodham before three sets of upper gates are replaced.

It's been a great weekend,  sadly Indigo Blue could not make it this time but I am sure they will be here with us when the drought breaks and we use the canal again.

My thanks to all who came along - Aqua Vitae, Orion's Wey, Thatwey, Nancy Bell, Stronghold, Zavala and Winter Lilly
