For the last two days I have been staying with Petr from Czech. He kindly offered me a place to sleep. A few years ago Petr built his own carbon/kevlar racing sea kayak in Prague. Put it in the water there and paddled all the way to Nordkapp and partly back; a 5000 km trip...
After dinner we drove the scenic coastal road back and took a small detour twards South Stack for this nice sunset picture.
Now it is packing-up and driving back to the Netherlands via Hull ferry. Hope to be back soon!

I should have known better because of earlier experiences. Too eager to have them have a good time at Penrhyn Mawr...
Penrhyn Mawr mid-flood at spring tide is very, very hard work. Ear deafening water rushing, boiling, swirling. Knife sharp eddylines. Burning-up our final reserves of this weeks energy very quickly. Getting to the gully to have a break was a real challenge.
The last hour of the flood gave us some nice and gentle waves to finish a great week in Anglesey.
Never again a 'big rush' to get to Penrhyn Mawr at mid-tide Springs.
