Of a Canoe for Two

 I was canoeing most of yesterday. I went with a friend, also called Barry as part of our training for our 3 day canoe expedition from Lough Neagh to Castlerock on the north coast of Northern Ireland. It was cold, wet and windy but surprisingly good fun.
The other Barry has been canoeing before and so have I. The only thing is that last time I went my canoe sank. Fortuitously it went down right outside a pub and we were able to sit in the warmth in our wet suits sipping guinness as we awaited our lift home.
Today we're practicising our capsize drill. Somehow I don't think it will be a wasted day.
