Ratty's Boat .....




Down through the meadow scattered with snowdrops and daffodils
you will find Ratty's Lake and of course dragged up neatly on the
mound at the far side amid clumps of wild iris and bullrushes ...  is Ratty's Boat.

half so much worth doing

Nice quaint feeling in these images-but did you forget the quote about a boat being a hole in the sea you pour money into? : )
Maybe Ratty's is small and doesn't cost so much. happy weekend to you

Nice coloring for a boat with all its imperfections. Lovely setting for the boat.

A boat on a lake or a river certainly brings a laugh and a smile. I'm with you Dianne.

too cold to go in the boat?

I beg to differ - it's possibly even greater fun to watch people messing about in boats!!!
