Winter Walks

Posted by NickB on November 13, 2007

Apparently Stafford is going to be organising some winter walks on a Sunday, but as he failed to show up for the AGM we are only guessing that the first one is planned for 18th November 2007 and start from Nat Tor Track (GR ??? ???) at hh,mm!

Cornwall, Counthouse Oct 18 – 21 2007

Posted by NickB on November 8, 2007

Thanks to Mark for organising a great weekend, no rain, good company, excellent paddling, rugby world cup final, walking/birdwatching and some even went climbing! No surf though.  Shame about the rugby result and the cold showers, it seems that some people aren’t as tough as they would like to think with the Deliverance style squealing coming from the showers !!  The best home cooked meal of the weekend must go to the RobBear Beef Wellington, even if it took two evenings to prepare.  I’m sure Dave and Mike appreciated it in preparation for the mountain of dirty crocks!!

Friday and Sennen was lovely and sunny and protected from the brisk south/south easterly winds so we took the long boats out from Sennen.  Once we were a few hundred metres out the winds at our backs drove us rapidly to Cape Cornwall.
