Lazy Sunday Afternoon

Aroo de de de doo
Aroo de de de dido

Plenty of people messing about on the river. Narrowboats, slipper launches, rowing boats, hireboats, inflatable canoes and massive hotel barges. So plenty of practice at avoiding obstacles. The best free mooring spots were taken, but we managed to ram the bank further on downstream, without running ourselves aground. We've discovered that trees are very useful for stopping the boat from going anywhere. Then it's just a matter of swinging the stern in leisurely, and stepping ashore with the pins.
