Paddling into the Proverbial Brick Wall 30/10/2008

After a very windy night as promised by the shipping forecast, the forecast for today was not much better with a promise of NE winds force 5-7. I guess I wasn't going to be paddling very far again.

It was low tide so this meant that the sea was off the rocks at Porthsele leaving just sand which makes it ideal for playing about in the surf.

Although not very big waves they were very close together and with the wind blowing almost straight into the beach it made for good practice of paddling the kayak in windy, choppy conditions.

I didn't cover any distance but had a great time and got a good soaking.

Thanks to my better half for braving the relentless icy wind to take the photos.
