The twilight paddle will soon need to be renamed, as each week it’s a bit darker than the last by the time we’re out on the water.
Perhaps we can call it the Twinkly Light paddle* – in appreciation of the fancy lights our very own Katy designed and constructed (let’s not forget her trusty sidekick, Ian, who helped with the sawing and velcro-ing).
The pillbox containers on the shoulders look a bit bizarre in the daylight, but as soon as the sun sets and we switch those little beauties on…et voila! The coolest thing since sliced bread. Keep your eye on this page for some pics of the lights in action.
Regardless of what they’re called, Wednesday nights on the river are pretty darn fantastic. Here are some pics to show you what I mean – if this slide show doesn’t tempt you to join us for an evening paddle, I’m not sure what will.
*Editor’s note: Moments after penning that name I’m already cringing when I look at it, so perhaps not!
