Bespoke sea kayaking- North Wales, Anglesey

Keith was back and keen despite the weather! After a coffee we had a plan, Moel y don - Menai Bridge, working with a following sea and then tidal flow, eddy turns & ferry glides with considering angle, commitment to edge and positive strokes.

We covered the ground so quickly that at 1330, as the current turned we decided to paddle back into a slowly declining wind and with the assistance of an increasing current.

With it just after high water we took a break and shelter in this boat shed, fantastic and then back into it!
Fair play to Keith, some good paddling and increasing wind against tide saw us soon back at the start and then on to the newly refurbished Anglesey Arms for refreshments.

Day 2: North coast Anglesey and putting down some mileage. Aim was to go from Porth Eilean to the brick works and back, around 16k. Forecast was due to increase later in the day, but it was great to paddle in our thermal tops, enjoying the sunshine!

As we approached Porth Eilean, we came across, 3 small pods of porpoises and I managed to just catch a fin on camera!

Despite the weather two super days on the sea were had, with varied conditions, some super wild life and great mugs of coffee!
