Santa Kayak 2017

The annual Santa Kayak took place today at Mount Batten in aid of three charities; St Luke’s Hospice, Shekinah and the Mount Batten Centre Charity Trust.   A red and white clad crowd, joined by some furry friends.

 

First Frost

Saltram garden on a beautiful morning, just after the first frost of the season has melted.  Warmed by the sunshine bathing everything; the autumnal leaves glowing orange and red,  fresh green  lily leaves steaming and dew drops teetering on the end of repetitive spikes.

 

Breakwater Bimble

The Cattewater Gig Rowing Club organised a row out to, and walk on the Plymouth Breakwater to raise money for MacMillan Charity.  Mount Batten Centre provided the ‘giant orange fender’ to assist.

 

Stunning Sivota

Gorgeous Greece.  Just south of Igoumenitsa on the North West Greek mainland is Sivota.  With a sweeping coast road in and out, and a mountainous link in-between, the cycling is superb.  We clocked around 250km in 8 days on both road and mountain bikes.

Fair to say I walked a little like John Wayne and as my grandmother would have said, I “couldn’t have stopped a pig in a passage!”

Lovely Looe

I was ridiculously gleeful at the prospect of catching the ferry across the river, simply because the tide was in and we could!  So worth the fee despite the uber short distance.  What a novelty 🙂

Preparations were well underway for the Looe Festival the following weekend.  Whilst we had amazing weather, I don’t think they did 🙁
