Late blog from last week – great paddle out from Lynmouth, rock-hopping, surf and wildlife

Had a fantastic paddle with Darren and Dom last week along the Bristol Chanel, this time from Lynmouth to Heddon’s Mouth. Was a beautiful day and learnt a lot from Darren and Dom. The weather was kind to us, with little wind and enough swell to make the rock-hopping interesting and the surf fun. Got a few minor scars from the hopping, nothing serious and got some nice surf in with only one swim!

I would have posted this blog at the time, it was a great day, I learnt lots and was very thankful of Darren’s coaching and Dom’s advice and company. However, my life was turned upside down that weekend when one of my best friends, Darren (Foxy) Andrews, was killed in a collision with a drunk driver. He was a great bloke, with a loving family and many friends. Just couldn’t face posting anything uplifting that week, but things a’t quite so raw for me now, so thought I should keep up to date. Looking forward to the next trip.
