Friday 28th August 1936

Wilf spent the day here; John came in the evening. Went up the Colne. Great excitement as we neared the Pool, John struggling with the pole like a madman whilst Wilf shouted and thrust at the banks with a paddle. Drifted down in silence. I lay in the bows, my eyes almost level with the water. The moon rose dead ahead and made golden spots and streaks on the water.

John stayed at Kapai until midnight. He had a huge bundle of railway pamphlets. We discussed half-day trips to Seaton, Clacton, Brighton, but eventually decided nothing! Occasionally John laughed, fell on the bed and rolled helplessly.
