Greatham to Pulborogh Brooks

Since buying a canoe in November I have been itching to get the entire family out in it but it has stayed in the shed most of the winter as I didn't want to put them off for life.

Despite all the good weather lately, yesterday was the first time we got around to a family trip.

Both boys, aged 4 1/2 and 9 months, found ways to get comfy and we had a delightful paddle on the Arun from Greatham Bridge towards Pulborough and back.

Although we did not cover much distance it was a successful experiment in getting the family on the water and I hope we'll do a lot more over the summer.
