Looking for a lunch spot

The Saturday club has gathered for a paddle out of Porth Dafarch. There is a nice swell. There is not much happening at Penrhyn Mawr yet, so we continue towards Abrahams' Bossom for lunch. But all beaches are taken by pupping grey seals. We paddle back to Porth Ruffydd.

Along the way we meet a Norwegian Paddling group with Gry. She was on the Antarctica trip with Justine in February this year.

The rest of the afternoon was spent playing at Penrhyn Mawr. Lumpy but not intimidating.

With Ed, Paul, Rich, Geth, Yvonne, Axel, Petr, Steve, James and Gry.

Quantum Paddle

A big contrast to the stormy weather in Isle of Man just yesterday. A beautiful sunny day paddling to the Skerries from Cemlyn. Keirron, Marc and I decided to continue to Porth Dafarch for a nice workout.

Calf of Man

A nice day around the Calf of Man, a small island off the southern tip of Isle of Man. Wind, tide, waves and cliffs make for a variation of fun paddling conditions; a great playground. I am here for the Isle of Man sea kayak symjposium by Adventurous Experiences.
