messing about in boats

`This has been a wonderful day!’ said the Mole, as the Rat shoved off and took to the sculls again. `Do you know, I`ve never been in a boat before in all my life.’

 

`What?’ cried the Rat, open-mouthed: `Never been in a–you never–well I–what have you been doing, then?’

 

`Is it so nice as all that?’ asked the Mole shyly, though he was quite prepared to believe it as he leant back in his seat and surveyed the cushions, the oars, the rowlocks, and all the fascinating fittings, and felt the boat sway lightly under him.

 

`Nice? It’s the ONLY thing,’ said the Water Rat solemnly, as he leant forward for his stroke. `Believe me, my young friend, there is NOTHING–absolute nothing–half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. . .”

  1. Ahhh…wonderful. We’ve been tossing around the idea of buying a kayak. I purchased a 3 hour kayak trip that we are going to try before we take the plunge. :0)
