Through the reek I could see the people who had been with me in the river scrambling out of the water through the reeds, like little frogs hurrying through grass from the advance of a man, or running to and fro in utter dismay on the towing path.

Fisher made his way beyond the last green wall of the garden on to a sort of towing path looking on the river and a wooden island opposite.
Fisher nodded and turned away toward the towing path, where he saw the duke returning with a rather dazed expression.
