According to tradition a whitewater outing forms part of my birthday celebrations. Not North Wales or Scotland this year but a cheeky dash to Keswick for a blast down the much changed Greta. Excellent couple of hours with my son Andrew and best buddy Ed with Judith doing the honours as victualler and shuttle bunny - thanks all!
Far too busy to get the camera fired up but it was good to see so many members and guests make the most of the warm water in Ulverston Pool this afternoon. I hope that all got as much from the session as I did - reinforcing my off-side roll has boosted my confidence! Lots of good skills on show with smiles all round; thanks to all involved!
Just on dark as we left the ferry pier at Roa... Pulled by the flood tide and pushed by a blustery wind we were soon up by the training wall off Roose. Bright lights ahead drew us alongside the light show that was the work boat fleet moored off Paddy's Quay. The slight turn of the channel gave more sheltered conditions past the big beige shed, dodging moorings and under Jubilee Bridge before landing at Ferry Pitchings...
Another fine evening, more paddling in the dark. Must try it in daylight for a change!
