Since I had been moaning about the terrible weather and joking about an Ark I thought I’d go with the flow (if you’ll pardon the pun!) and get out on the water yesterday.
You know me…I take notions for things…and generally they pass without me throwing too much of my hard earned cash away. Lately, my latest notion is to buy a kayak! I know…I know…. a bold move given my experience of them is virtually non-existent. Like I just said… I take notions for things!
So yesterday I braved the terrible weather and headed along to Lochore Meadows to get out on the water and see what all the kayaking fuss was about. One tight wetsuit later (NOT an image anyone needs to keep in the head for any length of time) and I’m out in the occassionally driving rain and choppy water and you know what….I loved it! Everyone at the watersports center at The Meadows was amazingly friendly and helpfull… so a big “Thank You” to you!
Of course, all this now means is that I will be guarding every penny until I can save up for a kayak of my own. Having looked online at the prices, that may take some time!
As for the purchase of my own skin tight wetsuit…. I’ll keep searching until I find one that has a built in corset and six pack!
