As I returned everyone was just about ready, with boats unloaded and inflated, to get on the water so off we went. Sadly the heavens soon opened and we got a good soacking! Still we headed down to Allan tarn before returning to Brown Howe for hotdogs. The rain held off whilst we got cooking and the kettle going for some drinks to warm everyone up.
It was then that something miraculous happened. The forecast came good and the sun appeared! Having earlier decided a paddle to Peel island wasn't wise I swiftly changed my mine so a few of us headed offto explore Peel.
The evening turned out to be lovely and we had an excellent rest on the island bathed in sunshine. It was sad to see a sign on the island informing people that fires and camping on there is prohibited, a sad reality from the abuse such island get.
We then had a gentle paddle back to the cars, and one member who had decided to use the peace and quiet on the beach to revise for her exams, to load up and head home.
