First paddle of 2022

Some paddling friends and I went to Loch Achilty today for the first paddle of the year.

It was about 15⁰C and a cool breeze and my winter wetsuit was plenty warm enough, in fact maybe too warm…but dipping my hands in the water cooled me down.

There were some wild swimmers just leaving and a couple of kayakers ahead of us but it was very peaceful and a lovely afternoon. I’ll need to make sure I stretch lots as these muscles haven’t been used for months! Hopefully there’s enough of us in our little WhatsApp paddling group to get out once a week (weather dependent).

I love making things and being creative, knitting, wet & needle felting, weaving, spinning, sea glass creations and more. You can find my crafting blog and business website at, my travel posts have been relocated to and my garden posts can be found at .
