This crew look like they are having their first rowing lesson, Lisl.
Lisl: You could be right, Ray
i hope the rower at the rear did not lose one oar, Lisl!
Lisl: I can't see a rowlock for her on this side, Ayush
I have seen younger-looking rowers... smile
Lisl: Bit of a misnomer I think, Larry

A fine shot smile
Lisl: Thank you, Cherie
That looks like it would be fun.
Lisl: They sounded happy, Michael
What a great catch!
Lisl: Bristol is always good for a variety of"Boat Fridays", Elizabeth
Jolie prise, j'aime bien.
Lisl: Then I am happy, Martine
At first I thought all the women were rowing on the right, with the men on the left, and I wondered low lopsided that must be, Lisl. Then I looked more carefully and saw I was wrong. How fascinating.
Lisl: Yes, it does look like that, Ginnie

I hate to tell them but not all are young in this boat Lisl. Nice healthy exercise for one & all though..
Lisl: I bet they feel young - well, at the beginning of their row, perhaps

Ha did they get the right boat (just kidding) by the look of the oars in the water, they were pretty synchronised. I can hear the man shooting though wink...
Great picture.
Lisl: There was quite a bit of noise, Astrid

Lisl: Thank you kindly, Philine

So lovely to see a proper boat made from wood and some plastic bathtub thing smile I was drawn to the lady in the turquoise top; I wonder if that is rippling muscles I can see? wink
Lisl: I am sure you are right about the rippling muscles, Alan!

This is like our main political party. The Youth League leaders are all 35 to 45 years old, creating a new youth concept. Great shot.
Lisl: Our Youth Hostels are full of retired people!

Must be great!
Lisl: I think so, Anne, thank you
It is all so much harder than it looks

This is a fine photo.
Lisl: Thank you very kindly for saying so, Bill

There’s an old man in the boat!
Lisl: Not allowed, is it, Chad?
As many rowers as there are days in a week!
Lisl: So there are, Marie
My website is now open at all
Lisl: I am so pleased, Marie
Your composition here is excellent Lisl, not a pasttime that would appeal to me.
Lisl: Thank you, Brian - nor me!
They are at warm up or cool down but certainly not straight at it. Wouldn't that be fun.
Lisl: They had just pulled away, Mary - well spotted that they weren't in full swing
Its a grand boat, Elisabeth. I've quite enjoyed rowing the few times I've done it.
Lisl: It is a very fine boat - a proper boat

Like Ginnie I thought they all were rowing (apart from the man at the back) It seems a strange set up.
Lisl: It was working OK, but slowly, Anne
Not exactly ready for Henley smile
Lisl: Not yet!!
