They paddled to Stoke Gabriel and stopped their for tea and cake at The River Shack, glorious sunshine accompanied them most of the day.
Back aboard then and on to Hackney Creek we an hours break was enjoyed. Ray and Hugh went for a dip, Gill taking charge shoreline and leaves and firewood were collected for a ‘flint and steel’ flame, enabling the group to toast marshmallows.
Back in the trusty craft once more to Tuckenhay.
A total of 5 miles paddled on a superb sunny Saturday. A great time had by all and a huge thank you to Mike for planning this adventure and Hugh for expert guidance en route.
