August – September 2015
The last six weeks or so have been a bit of a holiday for me. Much of that time spent catching up with people (still some to go, I haven’t forgotten!) and spending time on the sea.
My first taste of sea kayaking in two years was on the west coast with Ali and Oliver. A day out at Arisaig falling in, rolling and rescuing each other and ourselves to get back in the swing of things. After that Ali and I headed to the Isle of Raasay for a few days. Both of us have worked there previously so we were well taken care of by the owners (our old bosses) of Raasay House.
Later in the month I headed to the peak district in England for the winter teams training with BAS. All the new winterers take part in this and learn various field skills. A few faces that will become regular soon enough.
Right that’s me off to Hong Kong for three weeks! Looking forward to seeing the newest Phillips boy (who arrived when I was between South Georgia and the Falkland Islands a few months back), his parents and some good friends… also beaches and cold beer!
