I headed over to Mangersta, Uig for a SwimCamp at Skebadale bay. It's a short 25 minute walk out and after pitching my Trekmates Squall Bivi I went for a swim in the sea where I managed to get through the arch but found it to be a bit swirly so I headed back through again. Lot's of different kinds of bird's about and some make the oddest of noises (like a yelping dog - listen to the video). It rained through the night and was gusty too but the Squall stayed firm although there was a bit of condensation inside the bivi but I put that down to me. The sunny morning made me feel like going for a dook in the sea in my pants and rash vest which I really enjoyed and it freshened me up. I got spooked by an eagle on the drive back home near Loch Croistean as it flew down the road towards me and over the top of the van. What an end to my SwimCamp adventure
