As some of you will know, I enjoy paddling (kayaks and canoes).

Here is a clip from a recent paddle

Where's that Dik? Ever see any Stand Up Paddleboarders there? My daughter has just become the northern rep for a big paddleboard company, north apparently includes Scotland! She was raving about the fantastic lochs and wonderful mountains and valleys - I might have to visit with her next year in our campervans.

BTW pretty impressive icebreaking job there!

Cheeky! Although thats an idea!

@BG Its at Loch Ken, my local loch and stand up paddle boarding is very popular. Remember if you do travel up this way we have a double room upstairs you can use and the drive is plenty big enough for a van or two!

So how local to the Ken are you Dik?

I grew up in Townhead of Greenlaw, bout a mile from the Dee barrage at Glenlochar. Played 'swallows and Amazons' from Threave to Parton. Been away a long time but have some very happy memories.

I moved up from the south of England 14 years ago to Dumfries itself. I stay along from Palmerston Park. I keep a boat at the Galloway Activity Centre, between Parton and New Galloway.

Here is another one from the other day:

The water could not have been flatter, it was like a polished mirror. I love it up here, why did you move away?

Moved away due to parents. Mum came from there but dad came from Manchester. Work was scarce so they moved south. I wouldn't go back to live. It was extremely rural when I was a kid and very few people had a car. As my relatives have got older and retired, they have sold up and moved to towns to be near facilities. Now they are spread round the Solway coast from Annan to Port William.
