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----'

Back to Woking

Aqua Vitae and Thatwey
coming down St John's
The 'Easter Bunny' somehow got wind that we were in Brookwood and every boat had a card, a bottle of wine and a little canal related present on their deck first thing on Sunday morning - very many thanks to Surrey and Hampshire Canal Society.

We are now all back in Woking (Bridge Barn hotel) after a wonderful evening spent in Brookwood Country Park and at the Hunter's Lodge - great evening and magical morning in the mist.

Down St John's this morning without the pumps to refill Hermitage Pound being switched on overnight - that's really good news.

All boats are now safely back in the Woking pound with all but Leo No2 going back onto the Wey tomorrow - Wednesday for Leo No2.
