Messing About in Boats


Does anyone want to join us on Sunday for a bit of kayaking on Lake Merritt? We'll be meeting at the boat house at 1pm. If you can prove that you live in Oakland, the boat rental is only ten bucks.

As Ratty says to Mole, in The Wind in the Willows:

"There is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

Trying to get away from the jackhammering, eh?

Don't try to jackhammer while out in your boat- just in case moving and fixing up a house has made you truly crazy.

I once duct taped torn clothes together when we were fixing up the house, out of nutso desperation to have something clean to wear!

Hope it doesnt get that bad for you...

I watched "Wind in the Willows" with my kids in the late 80's. They loved that show. My daughters are now grown (with kids of their own). And I now have fond memories of our times with Ratty, Mole, Badger and "fearless" Toad! Hope you have fun kayaking.
