Boundary Waters Canoe Area Trip

Jun 29, 2011

Just returned from a fantastic canoe trip in the wilderness of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area of Minnesota. There really is nothing like this in the UK, or Guernsey, so it was well worth the effort to go and spend six days trekking by canoe through this genuinely unspoilt wilderness. Didn’t see any bears or moose but spotted just about every other sort of wildlife – from Eagles to Beavers! We hired all of our gear from North Country Canoe Outfitters who did a great job (although some better waterproofing would have helped!).

Kayaking in Guernsey from Rousse to Chouet

Apr 26, 2011

A gently paddle around – a lovely way to spend a bank holiday monday in Guernsey. I started out from the slipway at Rousse and paddled across to Chouet, it was quite windy so there were a fair few waves and it was quite hard work. Once I was across the bay at Chouet, I paddled inland and by the time I reached sheltered Ladies Bay it was really calm. A gentle paddle across the bay again and back towards Rousse, followed by a quick look around the headland and it was time to go.
