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'

Well I didn't go because I thought they'd be a load of Rambo types looking for the meanest, nastiest water. By all accounts I was completely wrong and missed out. And as enjoy eating even more than sea kayaking, it was a double whammy for me!

Not only will I look forward to reading your blog, but I will look equally forward to enjoying your terrific photographs.

Thank you both for your observations and positive comments. The Gathering was a success for lots of different reasons. I hope there will be plenty more to come. Perhaps I'll get to meet you both at the next one on the Isle of Lewis?
