Swam round the edge of Little Bernera for a change and into the lagoon, passing by Eilean Fir Chrothair then over to land at Cealasaigh. Was just starting to set camp when 4 kayakers were passing by and I invited them to join me if they liked. We all camped on the island and had a campfire on the stoney shore along with some drinks and stories. Good times with good company. Took a different route on the way back. Duckman was saying an average of 11 degrees.
A few photo's from this mornings swim at the Ui Church end of the Braighe. High tide and flat calm. Duckman was having a wee disco with his light flashing away at 10.2 degrees...
Cracking skyline this morning to view while swimming...no, the cat didn't get in ....10.3 degrees, 20 minutes. Nice waves...
Fantastic swim camp over to Pabbay Beag, which is just across the lagoon from Pabbay Mhor that lies off Reef beach in Uig. Choppy conditions on the way over but nothing too bad for the bag to handle. Lots of wildlife to see and hear as well as so much stunning scenery to view all around. Good times.....
Quick skins swim over to the reef and back this morning. Decent waves and current on the go to make it an interesting challenge. Duckman was saying 11.6 degrees average. In training for the polar bear challenge.
Nice morning for a couple of laps round the island at the mouth of the creed. Duckman was saying 10.6 degrees. You could feel the difference in the temperature between the fresh and salt water.
Fantastic swim at Swordale Bay this morning. The sea was flat calm, with plenty of wildlife to view above and below along with stunning scenery over to Lochs, the Shiants and the mainland. Duckman was saying 11.7, air 6.
Cracking morning for a swim at the Ui Church with a sky full of colours and the reef looking like a wildlife sanctuary. Duckman was saying 11.4 degrees.
Slight windchill in the air this morning on the Minch side of the Braighe but it didn't put Jo and myself off going for a swim there. Plenty of wildlife around and about, loved having the birds circling us overhead. Duckman was saying 11 degrees.
Stunning morning for a swim along the braighe. Air temp 5, sea temp 11. Certainly felt fresh...
