Phew, glad that one's over. Got to say a big thumbs-up to Kokatat and Phoenix Spraydecks for keeping my arse dry through all that stuff (feel free to use that as a catchy marketing slogan if you like).
This morning I could see fresh snow on the hills as I packed and reluctantly left the sanctuary that was Carn Dearg youth hostel. The forecast wasn't brilliant but worth a short day I thought.
Stupid boy. A stressful day on the water that will rank up there with a few other not forgotten in a hurry days of poor decision making.
But now I'm sat in another idyllic spot, on a beautiful beach in the sunshine wishing I had someone to share it with. But then again they would probably not be talking to me after that one. Still, life goes on.
Hello to Philip, glad you are enjoying the blog. It's all a great big hoax really, I've actually been living in the garage for the last two weeks!
So, how are the others getting on? Michal & Natalie (HomeSeaHome) were approaching the I.O.W. when I set out. And what about Martin Lee (Around the Isle for Rheumatoid)? He had just passed the I.O.W. Has he made it safely around Land's End yet? I've not seen a full weather forecast since I left, but listening to the Shipping Forecast I get the feeling the South has had a good share of anti-paddling weather. I'm also keen to hear of the Mid-life Kayak boys, I seem to remember they are due to set out about now.
I'd be interested to learn how everyone is getting on.
