Festive Paddle

The weather wasn't playing ball over the Christmas holidays so we settled for a paddle around Cardiff Bay for our annual festive paddle.  From left to right we have Peter, Taran, Sean, Blaine, Me and Chris.  Simon turned up to see us off with a few beers for each of us, good man.
Making an effort with my Santa hat.
We paddled up the River Taff beyond the Millennium Stadium as far as the strong flow would let us before we had to give in.
We then headed around for a lap of the bay, reaching Mermaid Quay just as the heavens opened.

Autumn Paddles

I've not posted for a while and haven't done much paddling either.  Since my last post we've welcomed a new baby into the world, Alfie Yendle.   I've also been training for a new job and I've finally treated myself to a new SLR camera which has kept me busy on land.

I have however managed to tag along on some local paddles to keep my blades wet and my head sane.  I have a Christmas paddle to write up next and a round up of the last 12 months.  I wont be paddling now until the new year so happy new year to everyone and a belated merry Christmas.

Here is a short selection of pictures from the previous months, thanks for the company everyone who came along and hopefully see you on the water very soon...
