Camping at Bala

The club camping trip to Bala was dented by the release on the Tryweryn being stopped on Saturday because there was too much rain about! We went to the seaside at Barmouth instead and climbed the hills at the back. This was followed by a paddle on a tidal river, see the pictures. The event tent was put to good use and Rachel refused to use the new club Karaoke machine. Sunday was wet in the morning and with the midges biting we paddled the lower section. Simon paddled well, with just one dip. More pictures are on the site (Well, they will be, once I’ve fixed the broken gallery – NJP!). Mike and Nigel also did the top section where despite 14 rafts it was otherwise surprisingly quiet.
