Looks as though he is enjoying himself as well - despite the fact that he appears to have run into the bank! Wonder what that dog is thinking.


Comment by Ken R on 20th October 2012 at 00:29
No, he's not run into the bank, he's picking up the dog.


Comment by Derek Platt on 20th October 2012 at 00:35
What's with his name all over the canoe. Is he craving attention. Probably no one would recognise him otherwise.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 20th October 2012 at 02:11
When was this taken, Alan/

Paddling is contentment,
brings back memories, carefree and pleasant
I'm one with the water, I'm in my element,
outdoors always a pure enjoyment,
nature's vista, its colours pleasurable,
its hidden bounty, its secret joy,
silent beauty uncomparable.....
It always takes my breath away,
truly inspires me in no other way.

Dog thinking hes not very good at the doggy paddle


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 20th October 2012 at 09:20
Never heard of him - but he obviously takes his Kayaking seriously - that's a Sea-going Kayak! I'd have knelt down and got a lower angle but it's a nice shot - and I think the doggy adds to it too :-)


Comment by dirty harry on 20th October 2012 at 09:21
i think the dog is thinking get out that canoe and i'll bite you.


Comment by Garry on 20th October 2012 at 10:05
mmm...that looks like a bog bone!

Dr Google says he Kayaked across the English Channel in May 2010, to raise money for the North West Air Ambulance.


Comment by Jod on 20th October 2012 at 11:05
Paul was doing a training session for a fund-raising kayak trip across the English Channel in May 2010, to raise money for the North West Air Ambulance.


Comment by Cyril on 20th October 2012 at 11:37
He's also very well known for his hard work in supporting and promoting north west charities, well done Paul you deserve some relaxing time out.

Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 21st October 2012 at 22:07
I don`t know Paul either but the people who do these deeds in aid of worthwhile charities deserves a mention.Good luck Paul.
