Sounds like a well 'ard and epic undertaking mate....have you considered turning it into a via ferrata so the masses can enjoy?

I just got my boat!

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea

In a beautiful pea green boat,

They took some honey, and plenty of money,

Wrapped up in a five pound note.

The Owl looked up to the stars above,

And sang to a small guitar,

'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,

What a beautiful Pussy you are,

You are,
You are!

What a beautiful Pussy you are!'


Pussy said to the Owl, 'You elegant fowl!

How charmingly sweet you sing!

O let us be married! too long we have tarried:

But what shall we do for a ring?'

They sailed away, for a year and a day,

To the land where the Bong-tree grows

And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood

With a ring at the end of his nose,

His nose,
His nose,

With a ring at the end of his nose.


'Dear pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling

Your ring?' Said the Piggy, 'I will.'

So they took it away, and were married next day

By the Turkey who lives on the hill.

They dined on mince, and slices of quince,

Which they ate with a runcible spoon;

And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,

They danced by the light of the moon,

The moon,
The moon,

They danced by the light of the moon.

She looks like a pussycat and I have a pea green boat.

I can't believe it took someone this long to bring that up.

Ha! Well I had to know what that meant. And whaddya know ...
runcible: 1871, a nonsense word coined by Edward Lear; used especially in runcible spoon "spoon with three short tines like a fork," which first took the name 1926.

Ha! It's a Spork! Clearly they were big-walling. Maybe the reference to "sea" was a future imagining of Pacific Ocean Wall, Yosemite? Wonders ..

Many of the imitations do. The originals actually have four.

I stand corrected. It appears I have the lesser imitations. :(
