Loch Tummel, Scotland
After a couple of short training sessions on Clunie Loch on Sunday and Monday, with Rhona, (playing in the ice), it was time to get a bigger paddle in. So, we headed back to my usual training ground, Loch Tummel.
The water conditions were ideal, hardly a ripple on the water, and there wasn’t a breath of wind. However, no wind meant that the mist stayed put.
What an amazing paddle. One minute I’d be paddling in the clear, then a bank of mist would roll in and I’d struggle to see the end of my board.
I remember looking up to see Tarzans’ Lodge off to my 11 o’clock. I then looked down for less than 10 seconds, and when I looked up, the lodge had vanished into the mist. Awesome!
It may not have been my fastest paddle, but it was certainly one to remember.
