We made it! Glad to say the machine and paddles made it back to the Rio Olympic course all in one piece! Fingers crossed for the remaining GB boats tomorrow! 🤞 Now we just need the taps turning on for some whitewater! Loving my new custom design Hunters from @gpowerpaddles...thank you so much, they're beauty! . 📷 @richhounslow . #BackToThe2016SecondHome

The Road to Rio (2nd edition) starts again! This time without my sidekick but such is life! 2.5 weeks til the season finale of the World Championships on the Olympic course. Then onto more Team PD adventures in Croatia! 🛫🌞

Thank you La Seu for another week of opening the shutters to this view. Unfortunately I'm leaving disappointed this time. My semi final run was up there with the best; going quickest on the top split. Problem is, you need to go through all the gates down the whole course! I got caught out just after the bottom drop; not managing to push against the sneaky bit of flow that was about to push me right past gate 20. Without that, there would have been a final for me. Home tonight to get a few days on British soil before the off to the World Champs in Rio. Excited to go back to my 2nd home of 2016 and get stuck back into that course!

Happy Birthday Wee Man! Missed you in the Peak District this weekend, but was remembering how you enjoyed your many walks there! #RIPScamp #misshim

Still time to get out of bed and join me for the #HarlowParkRun at 9am! I'll be behind you all as a Tail Walker to thank you for getting behind me with the #NationalLottery! Nobody can be last....well except me!

Same path, 4 years apart! Was grinning from ear to ear taking Lottie for some bramble picking yesterday evening. Remembering similar missions with Scamp! Thanks to Rasbo for the Lottie loan! . #WannabeDogOwner #MissScamp

What an epic way to start a holiday! Thanks so much @gabrielle.ridge for introducing me to this beautiful piece of water! Thanks to the weather gods also!
