Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing -half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.
The Wind in the Willows. Kenneth Grahame 1822-1885

When our Norfolk daughter was here I told her how nostalgic I found the old thirties posters and the other day these arrived in the post. They inspired me to reprise a true story which will be familiar to some of you but it may help to fill the gap when we are away till the end of the month.

I think sometimes I was born in the wrong time.
Adore the posters. Love the quote.

Parsnip: I'm going to frame them. They are so much better in the original - even though they are copies.

Now you've done it, Pat. I want to go play on a boat in a jauntily placed hat with a gin and tonic in hand!

Miss D: make sure you've got your sea legs first:)
