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----'

Heritage Weekend

This Saturday is Heritage Day.  To help celebrate it Byfleet Boat Club is going to Woking Palace, a place where narrowboats can't unfortunately get to so we are all meeting at Byfleet Boat Club's private moorings on Saturday morning and going up Woking Stream (entry just below Papercourt Lock) with those in the club who own small cruisers.

I met up with my friend Brian on Orion's Wey on Thursday.  We cruised up to the 'horse field' (between Murray's and Dodd's bridges) where we can guarantee a good TV signal so we could watch some Paralympics.

Off to Warren Farm today and then Woking Palace on Saturday.  We have wonderful weather - does the sun shine on the righteous I wonder - surely not!
