With the recession deepening, my finances stretched to the limit & my van still off the road is it any wonder that I take to the sea for contemplation & escape from life's bumfluff!
Alone on the sea your thoughts turn to weather, tide, sea state & bearings. life's troubles just drift away in the rhythm of each stroke of the blade & the gentle lapping of the passing water.
Distances are measured by strokes, sweat & aching muscles & new places of discovery by the smile on your face. Thats what I needed today, a smile on my face, a new horizon & with wavelets forecast I knew exactly where to go evan if it was gonna be a bit of a long paddle.
It was with this in mind that I headed for Sully (again) but this time my ambitions were bigger & a long held dream was likely to be realised before the day was out. all going to plan, England beckoned.
This KMH stuff is new to me at the mo, I normally rely on Knots but am learning to use KMH to use with OS maps.
The trip back to Sully was so familiar to me now that I felt no need to rush & chilled on the beach for half an hour before getting underway.
