Saturday 22nd August 1936

Strange foursome this afternoon, Anne, Richard and Father! Took Anne out in a punt (she was beastly windy).

Went up the tumultuous Colne. There were two other boats there; Father sat in one, a canoe with Dick swimming alongside. Near the Mill Pool we found a dingy containing two girls, one of whom was Diana. She grimaced horribly and put her fingers to her nose.

Later Richard told me of a strange creature who had passed upstream, dragging a dingy and swearing at the mud. After tea, went in the car to Chobham Common and gathered heather. Back via Thorpe and the Red Lion. Parted at the station. Richard and I strolled back along the tow-path.
