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----'

Only a short trip today


Off from the moorings at Addlestone and up to Byfleet Boat Club; top up with water and do a few odd jobs around the cub and then on to the New Inn at Send in company with Anita and Peter on ThatWey.

Encountered hotel boats Snipe and Tarus at Papercourt Lock (the lock that moved) who wanted us to move back off the lock waiting area so he could get out.  We didn't think it necessary but did so anyway - we would have been fine not moving but it only cost us a few minutes and made them happy.

Now moored at the New Inn at Send (and going for a drink soon!) in the company of Aqua Vitae, Hazell NutThatWey and Cherie (St Pancras Cruising Club).
