Whilst waiting for the dredger to pass, amused myself with some amateur photography!
On checking my newly acquired Garmin GPS I note that I had paddled exactly 6 miles to this point at a maximum speed of 4.8mph with an average speed of 2.7mph, with the tide in my favour my return journey should be a bit more effortless. On the way back, managed to get a closer view of one of the most desres areas of Cardiff, Rover Way Caravan Site!
Got back to Penarth approx. 11.20am. Made much better progress on return journey reaching up to a maximum speed of 7.6mph with an average of 3.5mph. Not quite the best scenery I've seen but definately worth the effort!
