Porth Trecastell to Arfon Cefni and return

Another cold one I was unable at first to open the zip on the kayak cover as it had frozen!
Off along the A547 with ice clearly visible on the sides of the road and showing -4 on the dash.
Launched from Porth Trecastell just before 1100 and off South, no particular destination the tide was turning at 1300 so a leisurely paddle..oh yes a couple of us had some serious man colds!!!
Up along Arfon Cefni to discover a small bay and an early lunch it was.
A short paddle up the estuary to some clear and oil like waters.
Back up with some help from the tide.
A pair of seals and some birds other than that it was a very quiet Monday on the water lots of walkers on the coastal path.

Always paddled past here , heads down for Llanddwyn. What a fabulous area of rock formation, steeped in the history of Llewelyn Fawr who had a palace here, and hunted the area "Y Parc" It was also a warren for raising rabbits for their meat. There is also a bronze age fort on the cliffs. And we have neglected this gem for years......
Lunch spot

This little bay is at the estuary of the Afon Cefni, on the north side. At the end of the bay is "Ogof Ffidler" - the fiddler's cave. Some interesting wave breaking there too, nice surfing for about 150 yds on breaking waves. Certainly one of the best lunch spots in Anglesey.
