Having met my paddling buddy at 10:00 am, we consulted with the excellent Welsh Sea Kayaking guide book, checked the weather and the tides, and decided to paddle from Cemlyn Bay to Porth Eilian. This did mean we would be battling into the wind, but at least the tidal flow should help cancel the wind out and hopefully give us a little assistance. Well that was the plan. It was a fairly dull day;
but with the shuttle sorted we set off from Cemlyn Bay.
However, no sooner passed the power station things started to improve. We came across a few tidal races. Here we are approaching the tidal race of Wylfa Head. Middle Mouse in the distance. The tidal races were big and bouncy and fun.
On the way to Porth Wen, our lunch stop, we even saw a couple of Porpoises. A first for me. The abandoned Brickworks at Port Wen is very impressive. A brief history of the brickworks can be found here.
It wasn't long before we were on our way again.
Still it was the best days paddling ever!
