Return from Flannan

Last summer I tried to paddle out to the extremely remote Flannan Isles, but had to abort the trip several miles out due to the Atlantic Swell which would have likely made landing extremely difficult. The above image shows the mainland of the Isle of Lewis as I returned to it through the Atlantic rollers. The image below shows the fellow who first greeted me on my safe return.

Interesting trivia: if I’d made it to Flannan, I almost certainly wouldn’t have a stunningly beautiful two-month old daughter now.
