We went to one of the Old Man's favourite spots and this proved too much to resist.
He hasn't swam here since the Team Honk Relay, and it was considerably warmer today than it was then.
Him and Ruby decided to have land and water races, with her careering up and down the riverbank, beating him every time.
After the racing, there was time to take to the water, but this time in a boat.
We'd never punted before and it took a little while to get the hang of it, especially when some areas of the river were so deep the pole didn't even reach the bottom, but it was fun. Least it was from where I was sitting.
Ruby enjoyed trying to row - mostly at times when it wasn't helpful, but still.
