Still on an Autumn tack, I thought I’d share some seasonal shots of the different craft that can be found along the Wey Navigation in Weybridge.
Situated on the confluence of the Thames and the Wey, and with the Wey Navigation running through it as well, Weybridge has a lot of watercraft, of all shapes and sizes.
I am mostly content to admire them from the towpath, however.
Of course, there could only ever be one quotation for this post:
Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.
– Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows (1908)
I’m not a “boat person” but these are wonderful pictures! Nicely done, Rachael 🙂
Me neither, despite spending much of my first 11 years afloat.
I’ve been inspired
to put the roof rack on
and bring the kayak out
Great! I hope you had a good time?
Mmmm. Boats on autumn rivers. And Mole and Rat too. Just pulled Wind in the Willows down from the shelf. Thanks!
Super! Always a good read 🙂
Beautiful – just like my lovely calender – thank you Rachael
Thanks, Wendy. Lovely to meet you this morning and thanks for the coffee!
I’ll let you in to a secret but tell anyone – I may (just may) be getting boat in the summer coming – river scenes are great for framing I think
All lovely, but # 3 and 4 especially speak to me. Look forward to making it out on the water wherever spring and summer find us next year. 🙂
