Back again

The weather looked promising for another play at Penrhyn Mawr. However the swell is exceptionally big today. Infrequent big sets run into Porth Dafarch. Saskia cleared a particularly big set that had me skip a heartbeat or two.
Penrhyn Mawr at slack looked foreboding. Even the 'Chiken Run' had a swell run through it. Not a day to play here. Instead we paddled to Trearddur Bay hoping to find some surf. Unfortunately T-Bay was too sheltered for the swell direction, no surf there.
It is nice to hear, see and smell how big swell crashes on a rocky shoreline. Another nice day on the water.
