In the school holidays we had the pleasure of sailing on the Hunter fleet – build early in the 1900s – beautiful wooden boats, no engines, a “quant” pole for getting off the mud. The masts are counter-balanced so you can go under the bridges. In the drawers, crockery! In the cabins, paraffin lamps. Beautiful.
On our trip I was so thrilled to see them again. One of the 2 berth boats came past disturbing the swans, so I’m posting the sequence of shots I took.
