A Watery Week at The Office

The new season has very much arrived and this week has been the busiest to date, in the outdoors, of 2014.

Its been a very watery start to the year, much rain has fell from the sky & this week has had a distinctly "watery" bias!

Monday night saw a group of 9 adults out for an evening in Ash Gill, North Pennines. It was the highest level at which I have ever attempted this particular venue, some of the popular spots were unusable & others became white water swimming locations for the evening, Ash Gill was "kayakable" on Monday night! I'm just waiting on a couple of photos which I'll insert later.

Wednesday saw the Gill theme continue with morning & afternoon youth groups in Cat Gill, near Derwent Water, the run off of water is clearly quite quick at this location as although a little wet water levels were lower than I had envisaged. It was great to spend the day working with my "Best Man" Paul Rich (see previous post)

Thursday will be the subject of a separate post to follow other than to say we spent an excellent day in the Ullswater area with Teresa, Dan & Thomas which featured a morning of Open Canoeing & an afternoon's gill scrambling in the excellent Hayeswater Gill
