Looking up the River Ness towards the castle, from Douglas Row, in Inverness.
Paused to check the river level, in advance of the forthcoming raft race this weekend. Despite not having been in any kayak for over a year, and deciding to leave the local canoe club - twenty years is enough - have been persuaded to help with the safety cover, and rounding up of the 2,000 Wee Nessies that'll be floating down this direction. A bit nervous. Haven't been in a river kayak since the previous raft race... four years ago.
