I don’t always take my camera with me paddling, as has been the case on recent paddling trips if the light looks flat and uninteresting I generally can’t be bothered. Other times, usually when the weather is bad, there is a great promise of interesting stuff happening.. so I do bother… but it doesn’t always work out, today being a case in point.. with the wind rising rapidly to 30 knots, some decent sized piles of water moving around and squally rain showers sweeping across the bay I really struggled with even just a little waterproof compact and only during quieter spells.. it would have been too easy to lose my paddle otherwise… but that aside the conditions were brilliant for a couple of hours of generally dicking around with the building surf… The weather of course was perfectly appropriate for mid-winter here in Cornwall. Terrific fun.
I’m feeling somewhat worked this evening, with the start of the racing season less than 3 months away starting to get some focus back into my riding so a good hard session yesterday on two wheels… and a good hard session this morning on the sea. A thoroughly excellent weekend :-)
