Kayak Club Sea Kayaking Weekend - Anglesey, North Wales, UK.

Saturday had a mixed forecast but was due to get better towards the end of the day and with the current beginning to flood later it would be wind with tide.  An 1100 - 1900 timing, looked like it would work well with a journey to Beaumaris for ice creams and then to Penmon Point for some current work and then crossing out to Puffin Island.

The far end of the island was great with shelter from the wind, loads of seals hauled out (we kept out from the shore so as not to spoke them off the rocks) but a gentle broad swell running, proving a good couple of down wind runs ...

The following day we had SW F2-3 and increasing ... with best part of the day ebbing a sneak past Penrhyn Mawr and paddling across Abraham's Bosom, so us into some spectacular coastline and scenery ... lots of rock hoping and close quartering being close to high water was a real bonus as we managed to get into pretty much each cave and gully ... well almost ... ;)

It had been a great couple of days and super seeing Shamim, Stella, Christine, Ian and Mandy again, plus a new recruit of Simon

Thanks to Mandy above, for arranging and planning the weekend and the bags of sunshine was a bonus ... ;) ..
