We made the decision to go on a Scottish Surfari using our tried and tested method of doing no planning at all. "I hear there's good surf on Lewis, we could camp on the beach" was about all we did, and we decided that the plan was bulletproof.
However, the ferry proved to be too expensive, so we radically altered the plan by saying "I hear there's good surf at Thurso, we could camp on the beach".
So, Friday morning dawned, I had just finished a night shift and had 7 days before I had to be back at work. I raced home, napped for a couple of hours and then rushed out to pack the car, ready for an awesome surf adventure. All I needed was a surfboard.
