With a couple of day's low winds forecast I decided a camping trip to Brean Down over in England would be nice & I text Noel to see if he was up for it?
Turns out he was planning to go paddling in Pembrokeshire that day so a free lift was offered if I did the planning, happy days :D
Noel exploring the new handling characteristics of a fully laden boat as we leave Saundersfoot harbour.
A photo I took last time I camped here has just won me a Valley Etain, courtesy of Valley Kayaks & Ocean Paddler magazine. Looking forward to picking it up in a couple of weeks.
It was a lovely beach that I've not visited before so I'll make amends for that in the summer & hope for some more clean, green waves :)
We stopped for a very well earned rest on the little beach next to the fort & recharged with a coffee (cheers Noel) before the final push back to Saundersfoot.
I've never tried rolling a fully laden sea kayak so I gave this a try back at Saundersfoot harbour & interestingly the kayak wouldn't invert? It just laid on its side & I had to switch around & roll up on my offside. I will have to experiment with this more when I'm less tired.
Thanks to Noel for the lift & company on what was a pretty bloody awesome trip.
Where too next???
