Fantastic Socially Distant Swim Camp over on Scarp with Grant and Stuart. The weather on Saturday was so clear compared to on Lewis. We walked over to Traigh Mheilein, dropped our kit, then headed over to have a peek at Loch na Cleabhaig that has the cottage on it before gearing up for a swim over to Scarp itself, setting up camp and going for a wonder up the hill for some scenic views around and about. The mist came down at night but on Sunday morning it was clear enough for a swim back to the jetty at Hushinish. Had good yarns with folk on Scarp and at Hushinish over the weekend. Duckman was saying 13-14 degrees average. Good times indeed......Some photo's by Stuart & Grant.
Bumped into Matthew and Jo at the Ui Church this morning as I was going for a swim. Tide was nice and high as we're very close to springs. Was great to be able to swim over the middle reef for a change and even stand up on it. Duckman was saying 12.5 degrees. Check out the bubbles video on the right hand side.
Bumped into Jo and Matthew in the sea this morning down near the Garrabost Jetty. Keeping a safe social distance, swimming through the arch, which is always stunning. A fantastic way to start the day. Duckman was saying 12.5 degrees.
Great turnout for a swim round the sea stacks at Giordail beach this morning. Nice and chilled out swimming through the Hebridean turquoise waters is just fantastic. Duckman was saying 12.5 degrees average.
Cracking morning for a pre work swim in the sea. Duckman was saying a slightly colder than yesterday 11.5 degrees. Fantastic scenery all around but especially at the reef.
Nice swim at the braighe this morning before work. Duckman was saying 12 degrees average. Love pondering around the reef in the middle. Good times....
Good turn out this morning for the early bird swim session at the Ui Church end of the braighe. A wee bit of recording for the Gaelic media. Cracking swim as always over at the reef.
Thanks to visiting Honeymooning swimmers Catriona & Mark for getting in touch for a swim, meeting up at Reef beach this morning along with Jo and myself. Conditions were amazing even though there were a few jelly's dotted about to keep us alert. Duckman was saying 13 degrees average.
Calm enough on the broadbay side of the braighe for an early bird swim session with Lucy before work this morning. Cracking way to start the day, even with 2 decent sized Lions mane jellyfish to view. Duckman was saying 12 degrees.
Grand swim on the broadbay side of the braighe this morning before work. The UI church is always a dramatic back drop to swim near. Duckman was saying 13 degrees average. Was funny seeing the crab floating along.
