Today was the big one, a Pembrokeshire classic that every kayaker wants to do, the Bishops, clerks & Ramsey. Well that was the plan at least, drive to Whitesands to meet a group of local kayaker at 09:00 & paddle grinning from the shore in the gorgeous sunshine.
My van on the other hand at different plans & threw a flat battery at me to halt my plans :(
The day was too good though to not paddle so I walked my boat down the river in Lower town Fishguard with a new plan of to Strumble Head, a small cluster of Islets close to shore but surrounded by fierce overfalls that can make for a challenging paddle.
Today though the conditions were idyllic, I was hoping for some rough water around the Islets but I was being wildly optimistic!
Leaving the Harbour.
Basalt columns like the Giants Causeway in Ireland.
12:15, its late, must be leaves on the track!
Peek 'a" boo!
There she is, Strumble light :)
I do figure of 8's through the Islets having a bloody good explore.
Into little caves, never spotted these before.
I find a little bit of a beach for lunch, peanut butter sarnies :)
Bit shallow here but I was determined :)
I'm loving the paddle back & having a good explore.
I watch the ferry head back to Ireland from a cave.
And all too soon i'm back in Lower Fishguard. Not quite the trip I had planned but a bloody pleasant one all the same :)
