for Christmas i gave John a canoe. what do you buy someone that has all the gadgets they need, buys his own clothes and is fussy ????? a canoe of course !!! we live near a river and over the years friends and us have sometimes gone for a paddle. recently john had been talking about hiring one and taking the boys, but every time there were none available... so Christmas sorted.
i 'm digressing, but anyway we took the canoe away with us to Eildon and the boys loved it. Hugo picked up paddling really quickly and used it each day, with great control/ they have played all week with it in the pool; going to different countries (one side of the pool to the other) having picnics in it etc.
today John took the boys down the river. they had a great time in the canoe .
