    Excellent, hope to see you then. Probably best you don't tell her about SOTP folk first ;)

    Hello and Welcome!

    Some nice rivers over there, only a couple of which I've ever visited. The Norn Iron paddlers are a friendly bunch, pretty active, and very welcoming. Even that Big Al bloke ;)

    Piecing together a few FB comments, I think Andy has been offered a kayak but its currently some 400 miles away, and I think he's decided to walk back instead of paddle. To be fair, the first part of...

    Nice one Gordon, good to see others getting out. I didn't take enough photos for a blog, but might find one or two once I eventually download them from the camera.

    Interesting stuff, I like bees. Looks like an good way of keeping things fairly simple, and being able to see what they're up to too. Have you got your mead recipes sorted yet?

    That's an amazing thing to see. I'd never thought about bears doing that, but they are such opportunists.
