Sidney's Maiden Voyage

Loch Shieldaig

Jim's midlife crisis conveniently co-ordinated with a small inheritance.

So, a correspondingly small inflatable boat was purchased and christened "Sidney".

Here's a few pics from Sidney's first wetting - a short jaunt around Loch Sheildaig and Loch Gairloch - including a couple of slightly chilly dips in the sea for me...

Setting off from Glen Feshie - it was chilly - before the sun had a chance to peep over the hills...  Off we go! Jim - Setting off near Auch...
