An afternoon jaunt...

This university life couldn't get any better really. I have Thursday's off to go out paddling and on Friday we go playing in the hills with some top notch instructors as part of the degree. Then there's also the weekend; boating a plenty. Today, we were finished by twelve like always and I'm not sure why I haven't done this before, but we went boating after sitting through a lecture on Mass Movement. Good stuff - that's the boating; not the lecture. To be honest that was fairly dull. The river we bumbled down was the Greta over by Keswick and after lots of people, the day before, had said they were up for it only two of us reached the river, kitted up and headed off downstream once a car had been left at the climbing wall takeout.

Looking over Threlkeld Bridge towards St. John's-in-the-Vale with St. John's Beck bank full.

On the river, paddling into the sun.

Descended through Keswick.

Once finished it was just a case of packing everything up, collecting the other vehicle and heading for home with the hard choice of what to do tomorrow on the timetabled day-off. Hmmm...

Good lines, stay safe and see you on the wet stuff...
