Last day of the School hols.....

Last day, so headed up Ben Cleuch, not quite a munro but you start at nearly sea level. Very cold, numb face. The Law was very slidy with icy snow so a few feet off the path was fine. Very warm sun though. Perfect on the summit for half an hr, cooked up some soup, using an MRE flameless heater and hot choc. Back to work tomorrow.

Loch Ard Canoeing

A bit chilly, 1degs C, when we left, and a bit choppy but with a Windsurfer as a bow paddler we made no time up to the island, with the bothy. A quick setup of the Volcano stoves and tea and beans, not mixed, was ready. No need for gloves and a warming sun.
