Got out on the lake for the first time this year with a group of journalists. We took them open canoeing and the weather looked like it was on our side with sunshine and a flat calm lake. It was lovely having that feeling of gearing up for a new season and sharing with people what you do. The daffodills are out, the bluebird cafe has opened its fab new building and spring is shouting its call to get outdoors!
The wind decided to come on a bit stronger than forecast as the morning progressed but we still reached Fir Island and then let the wind take us back up the lake. A few waves were no bother as our boats are just brilliant in that situation.
