The Summer Solstice Microadventure Challenge is well under way, and it’s brilliant to see so many people getting out and making the most of these long summer evenings.
Have a look at these pics, get inspired, get planning, join the challenge, and get out there!
I’ll leave the last words to Rebecca May, who wrote this on Instagram:
- Rolling on a river. My 24 hour adventure after work on Friday. In that time I rowed my lil dinghy which I bought from Gumtree a few weeks back for £70. I went through places that I’ve known since childhood, but the world looks so different from the water, so I didn’t know where I was half the time! This was mid morning on Saturday. I’d slept in my bivvy bag in the boat that night, woken up, had a swim, eaten my brioche and banana breakfast and paddled on to the next lock. People on the river are so friendly, I got invited to two different barbecues by complete strangers that day. I told people I met that were interested in my story, and they went off with dreamy looks in their eyes and mutterings of buying their own boat 😊 I paddled until the end of the day, learning and making up knots as I went 😂 and reached a pub by the evening, where I had arranged to meet my grandparents. The pub is maybe a 20 minute drive from my house. But like a friend said, I’m never going to look back in 30 years and remember that time I drove to the pub. 😊–
– I’m definitely doing this again. 💙
