Cruising For Boys...
Errr, I meant Buoys, honest :O
Back in South Wales again for this one & nice to get out far a paddle with Stuart again.
We were planning a one way today & with my van left in Penarth we drove to the Knap in Stuarts van, bugs an all ;D
It was a lot calmer than the forecast indicated which was a bit of a shame. Not only did I fancy a little play but I could of asked a few of the Glam Boaters along if I knew it was gonna be this calm.
Passing the entrance to Barry Dock with a good strong wind on our backs.
With the tide right out we would have to pass the South-side of Sully Island.
We were contemplating Flat Holm in the distance when the coastguard weather forecast came in on the radio with a forecast for strong winds. With the North Westerly wind we would be paddling into the wind to get back to Penarth, didn't fancy that much. That combined with just a couple of hours daylight left & we decide against it.
And had a rest on St Mary's Bay Sandbar.
Then off again to cruise for boys, sorry buoys ;D
First Lavernock Outfall.
Then playtime, I spotted a reef-break & couldn't resist.
Couldn't resist pinching a few images of Stuarts blog either, cheers Stu ;D
Stuart took a cracking shot of me rolling. I thought with my 5 star assessment booked for February I'd better get some practice in, about 5 rolls on each side.
