Stretching it out - bespoke sea kayaking

"What we want is more distance and increased conditions" came out over our coffee and discussion first thing on Monday morning. Impressed that both Zoe and Richard had remained reasonable warm overnight, despite my van showing -2 just out side the house, in the morning!

With the 4th day of sunshine and being out on the water again I was in my element ....
Trearddur Bay to Rhoscolyn, back Via Porth Dafarch then on to Trearddur Bay, was the plan.

a gentle rolling spell and a light breeze ...

one of the arches with an exciting entry and even more, of an exciting exit!!

just round Rhoscolyn head and a confused sea ... with monsters in the back of the cave, I'm sure of it ..
then pushing up and eddy hoping against the last couple of hours of the flood, before some lunch and jumping back on before the ebb ...

the plan now was for them both to share decisions on the return journey, locating a couple of bays on the way ..
Round the headland looking towards Holyhead Mountain, and the ebb with a gentle wind against tide was just beginning to make the swell steeper ...

Black arch can just be seen on the right and a reasonable 2-3ft swell ...

after successfully locating both bays, and a short break we were then off towards the final destination, with glorious winter light ... i hate my job!!
