Moelfre to Benlech by Keith and Debs

Debs and myself decided to take the gentle alternative of setting out from Moelfre and paddling to Benllech and back.

This is not the most adventurous paddle as it has very small tidal effects even on spring tides and the light winds made the enterprise a calm experience. As we set off we could see the lifeboat moored in the bay while the new lifeboat station is built.

The sun was out and we made our way along the coast close to the shore to observe the bird life feeding and snoozing on the rocks. These included a Robin and two Grey Wagtails joining in with the normal seabirds, Cormorants, Curlew, Shags, Oyster catchers and Gulls.

Lunch was on a bench on Benllech seafront watching the holidaymakers enjoying the beach in the summer sunshine.

After lunch we paddled on a little for a quick look into Red Warf Bay and the turned back to Moelfre, dodging the speed boats and stopping to watch a small flock of Turnstones feeding on the rocks.

Thanks for some trip planning advice Roger and I remembered the camera today!
