An old classic I almost missed!

“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”
I had heard this quote so many times and friends who read The Wind in the Willlows by Kenneth Grahame as young children told me how much they loved it that I finally HAD to get it and read it. A children’s book? Yes, but as an adult I found it to be soooo heart warming that I now recommend everybody read it. Especially as it is about the time of year that we begin, well, messing about in boats!
