We share this warm October air with picnickers badminton nets and the treat of strangers’ laughter; and the flapping of spare canvas as the sailing school tack neatly around the last buoy. Race complete the dozen craft sweep home, a colourful raft of sails atop lozenge-like hulls, each with one or two crew and each followed aft by wake - tails smooth as curved rails – a quieting glide. Among a wend of cyprus trunks we spend a good half hour, the non-stop canopy whisper like the calming chat of friends. Through the branches, we see slanting light chopped to fit on each wave top. Walking on: crunchy beach and seagull’s whirring speech; the glitter from a shaking collie, fresh from the lake, and on until we reach the club where we settle gladly on the grass eat fish & chips take away and make small noises of enjoyment.
