Quite Simply the best day's paddling I've ever had & I've had some pretty awesome paddles over the years.
This trip had everything, stunning scenery, amazing rockhopping, terrifying tide races & huge spring tides. What more could you want?
I was paddling with Jen's again today on his last day before heading back to greenland.
|The night before at South Stack...|
We did a spot of rockhopping on the way out of Trearddur Bay, you can just make out Jen's in the picture.
I hate giving up so I paddled well out from shore & pushed against the ebbing tide. I was working hard, hard enough for sweat to be running down my face. It worked & I'd made it across (Phew).
Jen's still back in the other bay was holding his paddle in the air, he later told me it was to show me where he was though most paddlers know it as the 'come to me' signal. You got no chance (LOL). I hold my paddle aloft to encourage him along & he seemed to have an easier time of it than me???
This shot taken just before pushing against the ebbing tide between the Island & main land. I recognized it from the rough water handling DVD I got & enjoyed practicing the techniques they displayed there.
It was a big spring tide & was at 100% flow when we got there, the waves looked huge.
We had a look at this cave on the Island first, composing ourselves I think.
Cant believe what an awesome day that was !!!
