Great 4 mile paddle from Leamington to the Saxon Mill and back on Tuesday.
And no–one capsized (not even me)!
Memorable moments: the views of Guy's Cliffe from the river at sunset link ; the Saxon Mill's lights reflected in the water; the family of swans at the weir eyeing us with a mix of contempt ("how dare you be here in our water") and majestic indifference (we know we're superior– just look at your pathetic paddling as we glide graciously past…)
Richard – "God, it's a barren, featureless desert out there, isn't it. "
Barry – "The other side you fool"
Is Rich being camera shy or is he trying to hide the fact we stopped for ice creams on our bimble to the Lickey Hills on Sunday?!
Tania, on the other hand, has no such scruples.
The panoramic views of… Longbridge
Follow the leader…
