The Northern Ridge

Trekking the Northern Ridge of the Isle of Man : )

Went for a winter stroll this afternoon along the spectacular ridge of the northern hills, a contrast of sunlit grasses and a light spattering of winter, overlooking Ramsey and the northern plain... the light was pretty special :)

 There are so many reasons why I love living in the Isle of Man : )
Catch you soon!

Boxing Day - Isle of Man

Glorious weather on Boxing Day in the Isle of Man

Isle of Man Orienteering - Boxing Day fun event

The Isle of Man Orienteering Klubb held their Boxing Day family special 'Score Event' with mass START in Archallaghan Plantation at 10:30am. The aim - find as many controls as you can and return to the start within the 1 hour limit. Mince pies, mulled wine and other festive aperitifs followed...

 Adventure Club, Isle of Man - Boxing Day Sea Kayaking

 After a quick tidy up with the efficient IoM Orienteering team, I headed back to base to collect the kayak fleet (and Mighty Triton tandem kayak) and met the Adventure Club at Laxey beach.

Night Paddle Experience

We rounded up the day with a night paddle... Sea Kayaking at night is an incredible experience, and last night was no exception, surfing back into Laxey Beach in the dark!

Thanks to Olly and Kit for a lot of laughs, and well done on your surfing performance : )

Catch you all on the water soon.
