After working pretty hard over here I finally get a day off & spend the evening doing what I love most, more kayaking :S
I was parked up at Tramariglio ready for a late evening paddle to Isola Foradada, a really cool Island near Neptunes Grotto, A big tourist attraction over here.
This was a pretty special trip for me. I visited Neptunes Grotto in 2010 & was blown away by the place but couldn't help dreaming of returning one day to paddle there in the late evening light.
I'm pretty pleased with the images I got on this trip but they don't convey the wonderful sounds of the sea gurgling under the undercut limestone ledges, the force of the spray as a swell surges into small holes squeezing out the air & the wonderful warm sea smell that subtly changed as the temperature gradually dropped from fecking hot to just hot. Not to mention the infectious joy & contentment of the locals in their pleasurecraft :)
A familiar paddle to get me started.
Isola Foradada comes into view, I've paddle out here a couple of days ago but its lovely to now be on my own.Stunning! The scenery of course ;D
I avoided the caves on the last visit due to the swells so today I'm going to explore.
And it was soooo worth it :)
Passing some more locals on the way.
Got my eye on a night paddle past Alghero next, watch this space :)
