Positive contribution is an effective resilience pill, outdoor activity a powerful immunisation to change. Getting familiar with risk is like putting honey on your porridge. It transforms a daily necessity into an enjoyable experience.
Being immersed in outdoor activity is how we learn. It can take time to truely appreciate that the only absolute guarantee in life is that 'things change'... 😊
Seasons change, priorities change (as our whole world around us changes), and we learn to embrace change (also known as challenge). We utilise the risks involved and reap the benefits. This is how people develop.
Keirron and Kim set off early this morning, experiencing the snowy North Ridge of the Isle of Man... by torchlight 😊 it was stunning!
Following the footsteps of a winter hare, with occasional bouts of driving hail, we didn't meet anyone else on our way out, or return 🤔 nearly 5 hours on the hill... great training for when winter climbing walk-ins are back on the cards!

Isle of Man Kayak Festival 2020
Magical memorable moments... learners experiment with techniques in the renowned Dragon's Breath overfall, off the awesome Calf of Man! Opportunity to feel and clearly see the benefits of practice during the festival workshops... 🇮🇲 😊 imagine 'breaking in' and surfing standing waves caused by fast flow over a shallow reef (a textbook overfall), utilising this water feature for free play, whilst being able to see exactly how it is forming beneath your hull... moments of clarity, developing a BOLD Perspective...
We then continued and made the exciting rocky landing on Chicken Rock a mile offshore.... before continuing our journey 🙌 amazing times!
