Fun On The Water

In the past week Kat and I have managed to get out on the water at Loch Lomond twice. Really want to try to get out kayaking at least once a week if we can, great fun and good exercise. It also helps just to get out onto the water.

Swimming In Loch Ard

Couple of days in the past week I have gone down to Loch Ard and have gone for a swim. Brilliant that it has been warm enough to want to do that and actually need to do that. When it is really warm temperatures don’t like to take Maia anywhere that isn’t near water just so she has somewhere to cool down and plus it is fun being around water with her. That is what life is about isn’t it, having fun when you can. That seems to more important than ever at the moment.

Out On The Water

Last Monday and Tuesday while down in Clachan I got the opportunity to go out for a paddle in the morning. Would have been criminal not to take advantage of the weather. Kayaking is something that I absolutely love but due to a few reasons haven’t been able to do much of it the past few years. Making a real effort to change that now so this was a good start.

Finding A Favourite Spot

For a while I have been looking for a solution for taking pictures while out walking, I have carried my DSLR for whole walks before but it good to have both hands free a lot of the time. I have stored it in my rucksack which is okay but one is fairly heavy and takes up room but also means rucksack on and off quite a lot and taking pictures interrupts the flow of the walk. Have used a compact camera a few times which I can then keep in my pocket but just not happy with the quality of the photos. Sometimes I use my phone but it is nice to be phone free for a walk. Anyway I think I have found my solution and that is my GoPro. Light enough to have out all the time plus waterproof, easy to take videos with and not interrupt the flow of the walk plus when it is on it’s GoPro stick can have it attached to my rucksack by the walking pole loops so that I can have both hands free for a lot of the time. Perfect!

Making The Most Of It

Rather than starting at the beginning of the week I have decided to start at the end. Thursday evening was an absolutely gorgeous evening and went out for a paddle with my mother – in- law. Words and pictures don’t really describe how stunning it was to be out on flat calm water and watch the sun setting. The colours were amazing!  Continue reading “Making The Most Of It”
