Mmmm now whats happening, the brothers seem to have abandoned their children and are making their escape by sea:
So what do Junior Swallows and Amazons do when they've been abandoned, play 'swimming in a buoyancy aid' of course, and most probably get in everyones way:
So this weekend they're off again to sail of course!
And as for Arthur Ransome's book, sorry but as those of you who know me already know boats of any type are not my thing, and this must be the most boring book I've ever read, I've had to pass it over to dh to read aloud because I start yawning as soon as I pick it up!!!!!!!!
