2018-07-21/22 Anglesey Circumnavigation

For some time now I've been thinking about paddling around Anglesey. Having read the various blogs out there, by various paddlers who have completed this challenge, I decided I must have a go. Besides, there are just two small sections of Anglesey I had not paddled, so if anything, it will complete the missing...

Plymouth Breakwater Lighthouse

2018-06-12 Plymouth Sound

This was a short paddle around the Plymouth Breakwater and Plymouth Sound whilst on holiday. The breakwater wasn't as interesting as I had imagined, but was worth doing all the same.

Falmouth

Kittiwake

2017-07 8th/9th The Farnes

I’ve had never paddled the Farnes before, but I remember years ago watching enviously a group of Sea Kayakers setting off from Bamburgh, when my kids were little and we were on holiday in that part of the world. Happy Days! Mike Robson put out an email saying he was running a trip on...
