Thursday 4 May 2023
When I started this blog back in 2009 it was primarily to create a record and to share some of the sights and experiences in Scotland's outdoors. When things got busy with work or family life, the natural tendency was to post less, but lately I've really let it slip. The last posts were some eight months ago - and they were recalling a trip in April 2022! "Retirement" from a long career at sea in March 2022 was quickly followed by setting up a new venture in "retirement", so there has been a lot going on.
In my defence, I've been posting a lot on the Mountain and Sea Instagram page and while enjoying the ability to post more or less instantly, I have missed the research and reflection that blogging offers.
It's not like I haven't been getting out and about whether solo or with friends.... There have been some great sea kayak trips....
In the very heart of Scotland, here on Loch Ericht.
And in the far northwest, a here in Assynt.
The hills haven't been ignored either, whether in challenging weather
or in fair weather.
