Messing about on the river...............

During the holiday season the river running alongside 'The Lodge' takes on a whole new life, there is always lots of laughter at the weekends with families out on the river rowing, canoeing and even paddle boarding. On the meadow there are always plenty of river cruisers and narrow boats enjoying the moorings, where they can just watch the world go by, enjoy a glass of something chilled and BBQ of course - it always smells so good when you are walking past !!!! 

It's lovely to chat to the boat owners and here about their adventures, I met a fellow crafter the other day on a beautiful narrow boat covered with stunning Bonsai trees. Hannah from the 'The Floating Tea Picker'  produces some gorgeous herbal teas, then creates lovely wooden boxes for them to go in, such a lovely idea. I feel a workshop coming on ...........................
