AFTER breakfast I get ready for a paddle then Fiona arrives and we head down to the bay.
We’re not long out on the water when the rain comes and it’s spectacular, bouncing off an initially calm surface,
If course with the rain comes wind and it’s soon pretty treacherous. We still manage to paddle round Clairinch and enjoy the experience.
Back home we have coffee and bother then Fiona goes off and I get some work done in the office.
After lunch – a burrito made with leftover ancho beef and butternut squash plus some avocado and Greek yoghurt – I wash down the paddle board and deflate then soak my wetsuit and boots in a big bucket of water and wetsuit/neoprene cleaner.
Catriona and the kids arrive mid-afternoon while I’m prototyping some resonator guitar pins. Similar to the necklaces but smaller and with no hoop and hole at the top. They’re quite intricate so it’ll be interesting to see how (or if) the work out.
They all go to feed the ducks and I prep the pizza dough for later tonight then go back to the office and design a clear acrylic scratch plate for the new guitar.
