The World At Large

Its the end of October (Halloween , in fact) and I'm still looking at other blog spots to get a feel of what people post. I'm not sure what the net gain is meant to be but hopefully I can begin to create something useful and educational. In the meantime, the locals on my street are preparing themselves for the very real nightmare of half-term and teenagers on the prowl

Calm After The Storm

12 months ago, in a moment of enthusiasm after a party with friends, I decided to put together an event which combined a number of elements around the theme of challenging paddling for sea kayakers. The 1st UK Storm Gathering was born and was to be hosted on the Ross of Mull, Scotland. Well it happened, people came and there was a storm. I'm now in the winding down phase and am still wondering what made it so good. Perhaps I'll have some answers when I've caught up on my sleep :0) In the meantime, it would appear folk enjoyed it.

Here to the next gathering..............till then 'embrace the elements'
