“There is nothing half so much worth doing as mucking about in boats...

I couldn't get away from the dock, without four of my pack wanting to go along for the ride. None of them have thumbs, so it's up to me to row. The old sailors used to call rowing "sailing on an oak wind"--my little Whitehall skiff isn't set up for a sail, but if conditions warrant, I'll break out an umbrella and row on a silken oar. It sometimes works, and we have no real destination anyway, we're already where we intended to go--out on the water.
