Spring reflections

Spring marks the time of year when we are getting ready to step the pace up a little more and prepare for busy times ahead.  But as we look forward to all the exciting sea kayaking trips and expeditions for this season, it is hard to not look back and reflect on the great trips that have been.  Here are just a few pictures of some great paddling moments during 2014.

Spring arrives

Spring weather arrived at last, Clear blue skies and still some snow on the hills. Tavi came out for a bit of moving water practice and a cruise to the upper loch and back. It was just gorgeous.

Snow on the hills, sun on the water

Alexis’ Birthday Splash

Alexis started with us as a beginner just over 7 years ago and is one of our “frequent paddlers”. Early on she joined in with what we jokingly refer to as the Seafreedom Ladies Team and has kept us all laughing throughout many trips and adventures. So it was a real pleasure this weekend when the “Team” met to celebrate her “significant birthday” with a couple of day trips in spectacular winter weather. They must have been able to hear us laughing from St Kilda!

Welcome to the Seafreedom Blog

Hi folks, welcome to our new website and our new blog. We’ll be using this to keep you up to date with our trips, courses and stories.

It’s been a bit cold and blowy this year so far and Carol has had the good sense to head off to sunny South America for a few months. She’ll be back on the 4th of March with lots of stories and probably a good sun tan.

Meanwhile, despite the flu and a sudden influx of industrial coaching work, Tony has been out for some winter padding with a few clients. There is something particularly magical to be paddling in sight of snow covered mountains.

Steph and Cam at Connel. You have to admire anyone who would sign up for moving water training when the hills are that white!

We have a big weekend planned for the 20th to 22nd of February when the “Seafreedom Ladies Team” are gathering for Alexis’s Birthday bash. If you hear a lot of laughter, it’s us.
