We had a look in a local 'outdoor' type of shop and small plastic boats were going for about €400, which is a heck of a price. Same price in various online shops. So I suggested he have a look on Le Bon Coin, which is a French website for selling or giving away all manner of things. Et voila - a couple of boats for sale on the south side of Rennes. He made a cheeky offer and was accepted. New toy for €160!
Of course he had to have a go straight away soon as he'd got it home on the trailer. Note: you need two people when you are getting into it - one to hold onto it firmly. I had a camera in one hand so the poor guy nearly ended up in the drink. Now that would have been worth it for the photo opportunity!
|Someone is very proud of his new toy|
|"Right, so how do I go about this, exactly, then?"|
|Managed - just!|
The oars are a little short as they are the ones that came with the inflatable boat, as the ones
that came with this boat are a bit warped.
|Off he sails into the sunset......|
|And disappears off round the corner.....|
|God I'm bored. Where are the damselflies?|
|Oh Oh he's coming back, quick MMM take an interest!|

Apparently it's my turn today. Oh. My. God.
