Getting the mid winter itch!

Just watched one of the videos my mate made of the nicest day we had all summer out on the water & now cannot wait to get back out on the water! Not the greatest song choice but im itching to go for a run!

Me too. The sun was shining this morning so we blew away the New Year's Eve cobwebs with a blast on the Solent and a pint at the Folly. Home in time for a slice of leftover Christmas pud with a cup of tea. Heaven.
