Day two started with us meeting at 10:00 am to decide where to paddle. The tides and wind combination were not once again ideal, with us ending up once again paddling into the wind, but with a little tidal assistance. We carried on from where we left off at Porth Eilian and paddled down to Benllech.
We headed out of Ynys Dulas
Once ashore at Ynys Dulas I began to wish I’d worn my other shoes and not my Peak UK playboating slip ons…
As we reached Moelfre we passed the wreck site of the Hindlea, a 400 ton coaster that smashed upon the rocks in 1959, just a few yards and almost one hundred years to the day after the Royal Charter was wrecked, with 459 lost and only 40 survivors.
It was hard to imagine so many people lost their lives here from the Royal Charter disaster. The cliffs are not even high. Charles Dickens visited the scene and described the scene in the Uncommercial Traveler
Best day kayaking ever!
