Machynlleth, powys
Broch, i hope you find some signal, loads of cold in house and feeling a bit under the weather, as I only live 10 miles away, I will pop up for tea time and say hello and maybe camp if up for it. Don't worry covid test is negative so just a cold.

What goes on in camp stays in camp :)

I'll post a couple of pictures later but, with a few last minute unavoidable drop-outs, it was quite subdued but enjoyable. It did give us the opportunity to discuss how we can work with a larger group in the area we've got.

Canoeing on the lake yesterday was stunning.

It was a nice couple of days chilled out with good company.
Our hosts...Sarah, Darren and Masey made us very welcome. Will definitely return to the bunkhouse with fishing rods in the future.

That is a sweet deck and handle on the canoe - can we see more?
I've just searched through my photos and I don't have any that specifically show the deck; I'll have to take one.

I can't take any credit for it though; I bought the canoe off a guy called Kim in Machynlleth. He's a wood craftsman and the gunwales, decks and seating are ash. He decked out the Apache hull. His wife is an artist and has put a Maori 'safety on water' symbol on the decks with pyrography. I was going to plane them off and put my own design on but I actually quite like them.

Coincidently, we've just bought a second canoe off him :) - it's a lightweight, 12', pack canoe - it only weighs about 20kg with all the ash fitted :)
