Will we?, won't we?, will we?, won't we?, yes, we will!

Our sunny start under the bridge

The SCA trip to the Forth had been due to go earlier on in the year, but like so many of our earlier trips, had to be postponed due to our rotten weather. Mike had rearranged it for June, hopefully with some nicer weather.

I thought I was only going to manage the Saturday, so you can imagine I was a bit disappointed when word came through that the Saturday paddle was cancelled again because of yet more blustery conditions. After a bit of rearranging, I was able to still go on the Sunday which turned out to be a glorious day.

Hubby dear was away on his 4* open canoe training, so Niall had come round to collect me. We set off from South Queensferry, heading up under the rail bridge before rounding Inchgarvie and heading down to Inchcolm for a lovely sunny lunch. After a while exploring the island and the abbey we cut across the river via Inchmickery, close to Crammond Island, the back up to South Queensferry.
A lovely, sunny paddle and a chance to have a great natter with Julie and Lara!
