Saturday morning (who’s gonna play with me?)

It’s been a while since we’ve attempted the Upper Bann. There was the incident. It kind of put us off.

But our canoe evangelism has paid off and we’ve managed to get Leggy and Dave round to buying their own canoes.

So at 8.30 on a misty september morning we’re sitting in Leggys’s house watching him take the wrapping off his paddle. I love amateurs.

Leggy has the enviable pleasure of having a house that backs onto the river. I get very jealous.

Had the best of times paddling through the mist. Felt like somewhere nice and foreign. I.E. not Portadown.

There were no major incidents. Apart from the odd part being too shallow. Which is a bit embarrassing if you’re into canoeing – that your major trauma involved being in a river so shallow you could walk across it.

Made it to Portadown just as the sun was breaking through the mist.
