Well not exactly 5-9 more like 6-11 but the idea is the same. Get out of work and in to your boat (bike, board, insert other mode of transport here) and go a for a mini mission. The idea is to make the most of the few hours you have between work or even days off. You don't event need a whole weekend to have some fun.

Just a short paddle, walk, cycle out of town and you can find yourself in some beautiful countryside and landscapes.
Here in Exeter we are blessed with the Exeter Ship Canal and River Exe right on our doorstep giving two easy ways to escape.
Then you also have the historic (and picturesque) village of Topsham and the Exe Estuary and Marshes which are internationally recognised for the birdlife and is a SSSI (site of special scientific interest).
So with out further ado we loaded boats after work on Saturday and set off in the dusky light on the canal. (most of these photos are through an Aquapac so a little blurry and some are great)
Exped hammock . Combo that with a tarp for a very comfy sleeping arrangement. me, jealous, no....
The start of another beautiful day.
