I don’t always pay that much attention to the weather forecast as pretty much whatever it is doing I will be getting outdoors in some shape or another so when it all clicks together it is great. Yesterday was one of those days as had decided that I would be going for a kayak and it turned out to be the most amazing day 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.

For ages I have wanted to cycle from Claonaig to Clachan and got my chance on Wednesday. Thoroughly enjoyed it as well.
On Sunday myself, Kat, Morag ( Kat’s Mum) and Maia went for a hill walk on Beinn Chabhair but as you might have guessed from the blog title we didn’t manage to get to the top. Due to various factors we got to about an hour away from the summit and had to turn round.
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.
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.
