On Wednesdays we wear Waders

Waiting for the next fleet to come in...

but they're following the Pied Piper over the edge of the world...

This lot remind me of the squirrels sailing across the lake in Beatrix Potter's Squirrel Nutkin.

"They made little rafts out of twigs, and they paddled away over the water to Owl Island to gather nuts.
Each squirrel had a little sack and a large oar, and spread out his tail for a sail."
