I really meant to get the LHT out for some more serious miles this weekend but I got too tied up with other matters. By Sunday afternoon I had a chance to get down to the harbour to sort out a few things on the Heron, so as it was going to be a short ride, I grabbed the Fatty. Turned into an hour to cover half a mile.
The wind was fair whipping through town and it would have been a hard pedal out on the open roads so I just wandered about, bouncing off rocks and marveling at the grip.
When I finally calmed down, and started acting my age, I paddled out to the Heron to start to get her ready for coming back onto land for winter. I tidied up, put the kettle on, then sat in the September sun re-reading the Riddle of the Sands. Not exactly what was planned but very pleasant none the less.
I did manage some tasks, cleaning up an old multiplier reel, but generally it was a lazy afternoon.
This lady came over to visit whilst 'Sammy' the bull seal was away but she wouldn't pose for a photo.
The Fatty is a lot of fun, and a lot of exercise, but I have to get the 'trucker back out for more regular slow paced outings.
