Signs of spring..

Our Canadian and American friends have been posting pictures of freezing and snowy conditions on their side of the Atlantic. Well, we do get snow over here too. This was exactly one year ago. The boat is a polyethylene Point 65 Crunch, a super-fast boat. I will post a review of it, which I did for Paddles mag, sometime soon.

As for today, there was no snow here in Glasgow, instead the plum blossom came out! Rather sadly I found the male blackbird, which has nested in the same place in our garden for the last 12 years, lying dead. He had started his dawn chorus about 3 weeks ago but I had not heard him for the last three days.


  1. Crunch. good name for a boat for this part of the world.where the beaches are pebbly, the land is a rock, the ocean is cold-cold, and a small drink may send you reeling. Yep. Crunch.

  2. Hi Alison, it is a great name for a boat but partly as a result of my test, there are now two varieties of Crunch. The Crunch Rocket and the Crunch Rocker! All will be explained when I post the test!
