“There is nothing – absolutely nothing –

half so much worth doing

as simply messing about in boats.”

      Thanks! I love Wind in the Willows – Ratty, Mole and Toad of Toad Hall! And …. I kinda like “messing about in boats”. I took this shot from my father’s boat. He and I were out “chasing the schooners”. You can’t beat a wooden schooner for majesty.

        Oh wow! On your father’s boat? It sounds utterly thrilling to me!!!!!
