Swimming through the waves at Garry beach this morning with Chris who is up on holiday from Uist. Sea was too wild to try a swim in to the sea stack cave. Duckman was saying 9.2 degrees. 500 metres at 20 minutes.
North Lochs swim/walk - 18.11.2018
North Lochs swim/walk with Grant & Stuart. Beautiful November morning for a wee adventure swim over in Ranish. Stunning scenery from up on Beinn Mhor, then swimming in with the tide in to Loch Grimshader. Duckman was saying anything from 7.3 to 8.3 degrees. A grand day out for sure. 8.9km @ 3hr 44 minutes.
Last pre work swim of the year due to dwindling daylight. Walked up the beach to just short of the river and swam back down. Cracking sky with the sun coming up. Duckman was saying 9.4 degrees. 500 metres @ 12 minutes
A wee splash about in the waves before work this morning, at Coll Beach. Trying the time lapse again. The 3 seals popped their heads up to say hello. Duckman was saying 8 degrees. 500 metres @ 11 minutes.
Quick pre work trunks swim at Coll beach this morning. Had 3 seals for company (spot them in the photo's). Tried to do a time lapse video but it didn't really work as I was swimming a bit far out to see me. Car park is looking much better now, thanks to whoever leveled it out. Duckman was saying a balmy 9 degrees. 1km @ 20 minutes. Ps. Also had a beach clean, tidying up someones leftover fireworks.
