I am growing rather fond of my dinghy as it follows me around the cut sitting faithfully by the side of my boat. I think the leaves suit it.

I now have some plans for some oars, and as I have a new boat pole arriving today, I am planning to make some oars out of the old boat pole and some pieces of ply I have. Should be fun - and with any luck I might get them done in time for Weeping Cross' visit tomorrow evening, and take him for a short trip on Sunday (mainly around in cicles if my previous rowing experience is anything to go by - but in my defense that was in flood water).

don't forget to paint the oars yellow too! ;-)

am wondering if flood water is more likely to have one go in circles than ordinary water?

Why not paint the oars bright orange, then you will look look a duck paddling along!

Can't you do that punt thing on the shallow, narrow canals? :-)
