______and can I also point out, to those with an artistic inclination, that since the tides today allow the rowers scope to spend MORE THAN 2 HOURS in Emsworth -
that they might like to take advantage of the ARTS TRAIL which provides culture and character within a very short radius of our "Tea by the Sea" refreshments!
Paintings and pastels, flowers and furnishings, sculpture and silver, clocks and chintz, -you name it, it's likely to be there!
In the ARTS TRAIL brochure there are listed TWELVE exhibiting artists WITHIN A 4 MINUTE WALK from the QUAY !!!
[Dare I say it, some are even closer than the nearest Pub!]
....perhaps you may need to bring a padded shopping basket with you on TODAY'S VENTURE.....
