Glenmore Lodge

Yesterday started early.  My new blogging skills are not what you could call... efficient.  I turned in at 2am and was up again at 6.  Steve had to be at Glenmore Lodge, Scotland's National outdoor center, by 8am.  It's a little over an hour north from Aberfeldy.  

It's no problem really, because it was a fairly mellow day.  I mostly was there to meet more people to paddle with.  I got the chance to catch up with Gordon Brown and make tentative plans to go paddling out at the Isle of Skye later in the month.  

Beyond that I observed the last day of the Coach Level 5 training, walked the grounds, and continued to prepare for my Coach Level III assessment on the 18th and 19th.

After we left Glenmore Lodge, we returned home to Aberfeldy.  I had my first driving experience on the wrong, I mean left, side of the road.  I went into town for a quick stop at the food co-op before I returned to watch the kids while Steve and Rachel were out for a dinner gathering.  The kids and I took in a movie and turned in.

The Isle of Skye is beautiful Paul. I spent a week there about camping and hiking about ten years ago. What a great trip you are having.
