Paddles with an Anas acuta...... unashamedly biased toward the sea kayak of that name (actually the voyages of two boats, one 'traffic over gold', one 'quill')

Campsite on the Isle of Ewe
My campsite near the north end of the island had a fine vista of the Torridon hills from just offshore hard frost for mid May but good neighbours, the grey-lag mother goose was initially suspicious but soon settled down and had the ducklings out on the water 24 hours later. Ground nesting herons on the other hand made noisy neighbours but I was up soon after dawn at 0500 for the shipping forecast anyway.
