It’s all Indy’s fault! I blame Indiana Jones for my interest in the outdoors. I wanted adventure, and in my late teens I embarked on a life as an instructor of outdoor pursuits as it was called in the UK. Basically, I worked at outdoor centres in the UK and USA, focusing mostly on water sports, and specialising in providing inclusive activities for people of all abilities, regardless of any special needs they might have. It’s how I met Jane. So, in a way, Indy brought us together. Still missing the connection? Raiders of the Lost Ark happens to be in that fabled top 3 of my favourite films. Yep, may as well reveal it now… In no particular order, we’ve got Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jaws, and Top Gun. Hopeless, I know, but damn those movies are good! Which is why, when I noticed my shadow (above) I had an Indy moment. 😉
I have superpowers too! Tent cleaning before the off!
And then back on the water! Engine one was out again! But we had a little wind.
And, finally, we discovered that the anchor symbol on the Lake Saimaa map means free campsite for all!
Fortunately, Petra is a little faster on the uptake than Jane and Me. I also think Petra has superpowers.
