I've decided to give blogging another look, hopefully things will be ok this time. I've changed the name to "Into the great solitude" after a book by Robert Perkins. The name just says where I like to go; whether mentally or physically I'll leave up to you to decide. The header photo is of me just after rolling in the Clyde at Fairlie near Largs. We'd just had a really nice day out paddling around the Cumbrae Isles.
