Our first real paddle of the year was a 45km circumnavigation of Lismore. We'd done it before in June 2006 when we took two days, even though we really only needed one. This time the tides were perfect to do it as a single journey.
Incidentally, there's a team of decorators at work on that lighthouse. We went around it, after the ferry had gone, and saw their work close up. That must be a pretty good contract to get - painting Scotland's lighthouses!
