Less is more!

This is another post for the benefit of our Canadian friends, who might have had their illusions of sunny and calm Scottish seas shattered by the recent series on the Mull of Galloway. Relax, here we are enjoying our second of three luncheons in balmy December conditions!

Some of the staff at seakayakphoto were concerned about the effects of Christmas overindulgences on our 24 pack abdomens thus affecting the tailored fit of our dry suits.

Alan, Tony, David, Phil and Jennifer.

We set off at sunrise on a little 37 km jaunt. Unfortunately all this exercise made us rather hungry.

We paddled well past sunset into the darkness. We might not have lost any weight but what a fantastic day!



  1. Your post has been duly noted here in Canadian waters... Which in my case are rapidly freezing over!

  2. Michael, the water was warm enough but when we landed in the dark, after 5pm, it was minus 5 degrees C. We had paddled into a light NE wind all the way up the far side of Lismore. It was a chill wind from Valhalla!
