Blowing my alias...what the hell...blame the adrenalin high!!
Self with warthog, gazelle and Eve's young man. Strange item between my legs is woolly hat. Too doolally still to put it on head.
What an afternoon! Traffic diversions (because of Manchester 10K ) so long-winded I thought we wouldn't get there in time. But we did.....
I was third last to come in at the end of the day, so I had a personal escort of kayakers - who were all totally lovely and encouraging - thank you so much guys and gals
Thrilled, but too worn out to say much this evening, so here are some pictures
next time, my goal is to build up the front crawl
from the canal into Ontario Basin and the final section
always time for a chat. This guy will be kayaking again at the Windermere swim in a month's time
Dock 9, Huron Basin, the starting area - just about dismantled
Imperial War Museum and The Lowry
view to a bridge
the BBC's new home
What a wonderful day despite grim weather and low temperatures. My time: 01:06:51. One month now to train towards shaving off some minutes at Windermere.
