Barley and Pickle went with the boys down to the stream. It was a lovely cool spot to fish for minnows and dip the toes.
Everyone was having fun playing ‘Pooh sticks’ when Pickle had the idea he wanted to try out the course for himself. Barley went along too but soon was having second thoughts.
Pickle: What a thrilling ride! It reminded me of the time I was up the Amazon in a canoe.
Barley: Well, we were lucky the boys caught up with us and managed to fish us out with their nets.
Pickle : A refreshing swim, that’s all, and beside we did win the race.
