West Shore

Due to DIY commitments my availability to paddle had been restricted, the weather had been glorious and I was biting at the bit to get out.
The only problems that the weather brings are it’s followed by holiday makers and the local roads and car parks become chocker.
So rather than spend an hour driving we compromised and stayed local going against the tide from Craig Y Don to the West Shore and then back with the tide.
Whilst waiting for Mark I had three kind offers of assistance to carry the boat down and although I did move my car to assist an offer of a cuppa from a caravaner.
Whilst rounding the Orme we could just about make out a small group of kayakers, they were like pin heads so far out and the sun light catching the blades ID confirmed they were paddlers.
Transpires it was the last leg of the circumnavigation of Wales
We were then shortly joined by Andy who had recently been to PYB and subsequently bought the instructors Cetus, he joined us to West Shore where he was picked up as he hadn’t planned to paddle so far.
Bobbly seas on the usual corner and wind and tide carrying us back, lots of activity on the Bay great to see the place busy

Joined by Andy he caught us up and asked if he could join problems
