I hooked up with the guys north of the border for some canoe camping at the weekend, a very chilled out affair, mostly spent under the 'chute dodging the rain and chilly winds. It was good to be back up there and I hope to get a lot more in again this year, some pics ...
Landed at the beach
The view for the weekend, although it wasn't always as sunny as this
Stephen getting his camp sorted out
Josh's bivvy under an old Hennessy tarp I think
Mine up, my quilts are getting some air time after being packed for days
One for tartan ferret
I had a nice little paddle out in the setting sun
Looking back to camp, pre 'chute
We had a visitor in camp in the evenings
Stephens new shiny toy
Chris away for some sailing on day two
Stephen chilling under the 'chute
Big guy came back on the second night, it was too cold and wet for the third though
Getting brave, he actually came under right the 'chute after the other guys had gone to bed
A nice weekend despite the rain and the chill, Josh caught a nasty bug and spent most of the trip in bed, get well soon mate. We had the usual lottery of whether we'd make it back to the mainland again this morning, the winds had really picked up over night and the forecast wasn't great. Once we were all up we made the quick decision to pack and get out of dodge while we still could, there'd been a lull in the wind and we managed to get away in good time, timing it nicely before it got a bit squally again.
Looking forward to the next one lads.
