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----'

Slight change of Plan

We were planning to go straight to Warren Farm (as mentioned previously) but decided that a little additional mileage (and a couple of locks) on such a stunning day would be in order so we headed off to go up through Newark and Papercourt (the lock that moved) locks to wind above Worsfold Gates and spend the evening outside the New Inn at Send.

It's been a stunning day - one of those ones we remember for years to come.  I have struggled a bit with TV reception today - not realising that to have the aerial lower can sometimes work better than having it high - lower is 100% better than high today.

We'll be off at about 08:30 tomorrow (after a late summer evening in the pub I suspect) to be at Warren Farm in time to be collected to go up the Woking Stream.

Warren Farm is in a little stream to the west of the navigation just below Newark Priory and Newark Lock.
