While planning for this vacation I had hoped to find a way to kayak or fly fish. Once the kayak idea evaporated due to scheduling and logistics I started looking into fly fishing. How cool would it be to say I fly fished in Scotland!
We started out on our second day of our Scottish Highland vacation with a down pour of rain. We had planned for rain, and coming from The Netherlands where it is rainy a majority of time we never alter our plans for rain. We just dress for it and go on!
We started out early on Sunday morning heading to the stones…Just a short drive down the road is the Culloden Battlefield.
I woke up early to have the hubby drive me to Rijpwetering. From there I rode my bike the last three kilometers to the campsite. I could celebrate some time on the water as the summer solstice approaches.
I have to admit the Sea to Summit XPOT 1.4L was an impulsive purchase last week when I visited the new Bever outdoor store in Hoofddorp.
This last weekend was absolutely gorgeous here in The Netherlands! A full weekend of sun, warm temperatures and camping. We couldn’t ask for much better.
I wasn’t sure that we were going to paddle very far. In my mind, I wanted our first canoe paddle of the year to be more than just hitting the water. I was determined to do my best and if my back acted up we could always turn back to the camping.
By the end of the day, we experienced a sunrise and and sunset from our Cedar beauty on the lake.
