Kayak Isle of Man - Scotland.

About 3 months ago I resigned as a Consultant Anaesthetist at the Nobles Hospital, Isle of Man. I had no job to go to, and I really didn't know what I was going to do for a living. All I knew was that I needed to leave that job. I didn't even know if I wanted to ever practice as a doctor again. As an aside, I learned this week that another anaesthetist from my former department has done the same thing! Either way, this week marks my return to the world of the working. I'm off to the Outer Hebrides for a few weeks to cover for an absent Consultant Anaesthetist. After that I'm off to the Orkney Islands off the north coast of Scotland, to do the same thing up there. Now you'll notice a pattern starting to emerge here? All the jobs I've accepted so far are in prime kayaking spots, and yes the Rockpool will be coming with me.
The photos above were snapped during a rather blustery circumnavigation of the Calf of Man on Saturday with Jess and Ian.

Brilliant plan John, unfortunately the population of the Outer Hebrides is not enough to warrant a consultant geneticist job, not even a locum!

Have a good time.

I'll ask them whilst I'm up there. Thanks Douglas,
