This summer my daughter had a party in Tonbridge for 2 hours, which left me with my 2 four year olds for a couple of hours, and nowhere to go! So we walked to the castle for a little look, and that’s where we spotted a little line of rowing boats neatly moored up next to the Castle Bridge on the River Medway. Obviously, we couldn’t walk away once we’d spotted them!
The rowing boats (and one motor cruiser) belong to Tonbridge River Trips. I chatted briefly to the nice gentleman and he fitted the kids up with appropriate life jackets and off we went. He asked me ‘Have you ever rowed before?’… to which I replied ‘Not really’ with a wink, haha. He would find out later, when I tagged his small business on twitter that I have an obsession with water, and given the chance I would probably row across the Atlantic!
