Messing About on the River

I'd been wondering what to do this weekend. The solution came to me from an unlikely source: The Telegraph. The plan is, dig the inflatable canoe out of the loft, dust it down and repair any punctures, then cart it over to Gloucester and go for a paddle. It might seem like an odd thing to do in the middle of a chilly March, but if you take a look at the video on the Telegraph's weird news page, you'll see why I'm tempted.
So, if you happen to be near the River Severn this weekend and see a couple frantically bailing out a deflating canoe, pursued by a curious seal, it'll just be me and he who fixes the computer wishing we'd found something more sensible to do.


  1. Sounds like a great way to spend the weekend.
    If you find your inflatable canoe is deflating as you paddle down the river, you could always ask any friendly animal that swims by to help you seal the leaks?

  2. 'Seal' the leaks, very good! :-D
