It is amazing what gets washed up on a beach!
A group of us were filming Rescues at the south end of the Isle of Skye, when who should paddle into view but Bruce Jolliffe.
So I shot a short sequence there and did a quick chat with Bruce when he arrived at Gordon and Morags (Skyak Adventures) for curry, beer and bed for the night.
He's a long way into his attempt to paddle from Largs to Stornoway, raising money for a good cause. Listen briefly to Bruce below, but you can read much more, and donate, at WestCoastKayakChallenge.co.uk
Bruce writes really well, and his regularly updated blog makes for entertaining reading when you can't get out on the water yourself. Don't know what he'll say about last night though...
