|Took the kids out for a ride in the boat again yesterday as it was such a nice day. Of course, rushing things I didn't let the outboard warm up properly and it stalled in the river. Much hilarity then ensued as I attempted to re-start it. Eventually succeeded, having given a couple of friends a good chuckle at my exertions.
Makes note to self: MUCH easier to start an outboard when: a) it's not in gear; b) you're not kneeling on the fuel pipe!
Spent a couple of hours in the evening bobbing up and down in Campbeltown Loch with the local kayak and canoeing club. Out in the Loch is a really great place to admire the view of Campbeltown and the surrounding hills. I was glad not to get too wet though as I wouldn't fancy a mouthful of the water.
