A quick blast round the Small Isles – or – “Shouldn’t it be summer now?”

IMGP2511We only had five days to paddle round Rum Eigg and Canna. Started on the Monday and crossed the 6+ nautical miles to Eigg against a force 4-5 NW. Tough but fun. Paddled hard round the rest and then returned from Eigg to Arisaig (after some surf adventures) against a force 3 SE on a compass bearing with not much visibility. Long days, Puffins, Shearwaters and fortress like cliffs made it all very memorable.

But flippin’ eck it was wet and cold! It was one of those trips that are especially good when you are back home in bed, wrapped round a good meal. One of the highlights was our excellent meal in the Canna cafe.

Anyway, thanks to Joan for paddling so long, so far and so fast. And for being excellent and intrepid company.
