Sgor an Lochain Uaine

Started walking at 1010, it seemed an appropriate time. Low cloud. Windy. Made me wish i'd taken the big camera. But i'm feart that i'd break it. So much for the great outdoors lifting my self-confidence. Just more to worry about.

Last night's pitch was great except the slight slope was magnified by the big sleepmat. Now, chutes are fun in their ain right, but nae at one in the morning and five in the morning. I didnae go "wheesh" once.
