Paddling for a purpose

A couple of weeks ago they demolished the chimneys and turbine hall on a nearby defunct power station at Cockenzie in East Lothian. A pal, his daughter & I paddled out to watch from the sea, take photos and video.

Finally I managed to get it on YouTube. The problem seems to have been using a Police track ‘Can’t Stand Loosing You’. Once I replaced it with a Randy Newman track, away it went. So duly posted: Cockenzie Chimneys Come Down. Look at around 25 seconds in, a strange figure appears from the smoke & dust.

    
Today was a strange ride. I was out for my usual Sunday ride, often about 40+ miles. As I neared home I realised it was just under 70 miles, it’s funny these days of longer rides, not at all intended. And it was so good: Didn’t mean to go this far!

So, there we go.

    That’s amazing to see the demolition Alistair. It looks like it was quite community event out there on the water. You wouldn’t want to be downwind of the smoke and dust, particularly with that strange figure in there 😉
