September Ullswater Trip

For our final camping trip of the season, a small group camped at Waterside Campsite near Pooley Bridge Friday to Sunday. The Friday night was rather chilly which meant our last trip of the season was similar to our first with a frost appearing in the morning.

On the Saturday, a morning paddle around the Pooley Bridge end of Ullswater was enjoyed by all, and the afternoon was spent playing on different craft. Even an unexperienced guest managed to try out all 3! There was also a good demonstration of a canoe rescue.

The group enjoyed a lovely eveing meal at a pub in Pooley Bridge, then continued to burn our supply of wood one we returned.

On Sunday, 2-day trippers and 1 camper, managed to paddle the Glen Ridding end of Ullswater. Completing a short circular route around Norfolk Island, a bucket list trip ticked for one of the paddlers. (pictures coming soon!)

All in all, a good weekend of paddling. Here’s to next summer, when it all starts again in April!
