    A few pics from the weekend

    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.

    That is a very cool looking place to set camp. Is there any good fishing in that area?
    It looks like at least 1 good day of playing in the water and good job on the pics.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    Looks like a very cool place. That is definitely not the kind of visitor we would get here in the Pacific Northwest.

    Nice looking area. Saw you were from Yorkshire then noticed the wild life. Roughly where were you? ;-)

    Great stuff. You're making me jealous, the water here is still to hard to paddle on.
    Good luck,

    Great weekend romp, shewie.

    Mountain views are good for the soul....& getting to them is good for my waistline.

    Good pics Rich; Felt a bit of a pang in the heart looking at paddling pics. We're a couple of months off yet. Like everyone else I'm surprised to see any of the northern Roo's left,,(-;
