Dawn & a perfect sunrise to start the day. I felt I could not come to Anglesey & fail to paddle out to Puffin Island. Its a magical place where the Puffins seem to be bald, fat & grey?
In fact a rat epidemic caused the Puffins to leave this place & these days offers sanctuary to lots of inquisitive seals & a lot of sea birds.
I set off from the scenic lay by at Penmon, its only a short paddle but it is a good one.
The shipwreck at Penmon with Puffin Island in the distance. The waves here were tiny but I was catching them with little effort? As I got closer the wreck created a large lee from the tide & getting back into the flow was fun with some small standing waves.

I practiced my ferry gliding by lining the beacon up with the South tip of the Island.
I was expecting seals on the South beach & I wasn't disappointed.
Some Cormorants too.
Back on the North Side.
And feeling the wind a bit now. Instantly blown backwards if I take a picture.
Not far now though I'm having to work hard into a headwind.
As I write this I'm camped near to the Swellies for tomorrow mornings action, need to get some moving water practice ready for my 5 star training on Skye in a couple of weeks time :)
