A Magic Winters day Sea Kayaking

I met Kelly and Craig at Trearddur Bay hotel for a coffee and chat about their days Bespoke sea kayaking.  Forecast was F4/5 N, but all was much lighter, it was bright and a great calm sea state.  Rhoscolyn facing South offered protection and so was to be our location.  A journey was the aim, so after  some brief work on inside/out side turns, it was putting these into context moving in and out of the rocky channels.  



This was the first time for Kelly in a sea kayak and on the sea, and she did super, right throughout the day. A big well done ...


The weather threaten at times to follow the forecast, but thankfully never really arrived ...



And we were treated to super winter light and some amazing reflection ...


Briefly met one of the locals ...a grey seal at the Beacon, snoozing and making the most of the Winter sunshine.


and at times some amazing and stunning colours ...


One of my favourite caves, with a gentle rolling swell creating super conditions and disturbing the beast which lied within ... round Rhoscolyn head and on to a small cove for our 2nd break of the day.

With the tide now just into the ebb, we had enough time to paddle round to the White Arch, before jumping back on the tide, to assist us back to our starting point.


Craig up front looking on towards the Lleyn Peninsula after a top winters day sea kayaking and one I'm sure they will both remember ... and what a start for Kelly ....
