The Birds

We (Justine, Mirco an I) were not the only ones that thought the Skerries would be a nice trip today. Paddling from Cemlyn would be using the very last of the ebb and hence today an early 10:00 AM start. Three seperate groups went out at about the same time. We were the last to go, but we arrived first. This late in the tide we decided to almost aim at the Skerries, today the shortest and fastest route.

At the Skerries the Terns are full-on nesting. Even staying on the designated path we got attacked by the angry birds. Justine held her dry bag over her head. Seems like a good idea. However her dry bag now has a pecking rash.

Upon leaving we met an inquisitive seal and had a small race to play in. With the building flood via West Mouse cruising back to Cemlyn. A beautiful day!
