The nice lady in Acharacle Post Office couldn't quite believe her eyes when we arrived with two large boxes. 'Two boxes for Parcelforce' she probably thought. Oh no.
We opened them on the counter to reveal around seventy, white padded envelopes. Then it dawned on her that each of these was a separate piece of mail. The franking machine would be busy today.
She took it all in her stride, bless her, and we were out again in under twenty mnutes.
But our day should not have been over. Orders have been coming in from retailers around the world. We had boxes of 50 to ship to Norway, 50 to ship to Australia, 25 to ship to Sweden. We should have had a busy day.
But, there was superb high pressure, a friend was visiting the area, and so we did what any self respecting sea kayaker would do.
We went paddling.
Tomorrow we're heading to Fort William post office with the next batch. Order early to beat the postal strike on Thursday and Friday.
