‘What a lovely moment,’ Archie sighed.
‘If you say so,’ said Agnes, shivering and stamping her cold feet. ‘Can we go now?’
‘We could just cross the river here rather than walking all the way back to the bridge,’ Archie suggested. The water level was low.

There was a squelch as his feet and legs disappeared into the mud.
He clambered back onto the bank, sodden, and without his wellies.
‘Now that was memorable moment,’ Agnes said, as she started walking along the path.
