Big adventure for son and dad in small boat


Here are a few photos of a big adventure that my six year old son and I have been planning all winter. We did it in a 8′ plywood pram punt that I nailed together in an afternoon 6 years ago and have left out in the garden since. It’s been used variously as a covering for stuff, a play pirate ship and see saw and is still going strong.

Our first trio of the summer I picked him up from school with the punt in the back of the van, drove down to our local pier and rowed the 200′ to the head of the creek where there is a small terraced hazel grove. The sheltered inlet where we were had been an orchard in previous times. He even did some of the rowing and of course there were plenty of treats. I think the best thing for him was being able to boss Dad around as he was the captain.
