I decided to paddle out from Porthsele and round to St Justinian, home of the St David's lifeboat, and see how it goes.
On reaching St John's Point and the adjacent headland of Penrhyn Dalar. I now hit the main tide flow of Ramsey Sound which runs right close to Penrhyn Dalar and with the tide against me it was a bit of a struggle to get around, but once I did the water became a little more sheltered and on reaching the small headland of Porthyn Hyfryd there is a counter eddy flowing the other way which aids my progress into St Justinian.Here it is sheltered from the wind and I have a rest and a chat with Tim from Venture Jet who has just returned from a trip around Ramsey Island. You can definately tell winter is on the way as there are very few boats moored here compared to a few weeks ago.
There is a seal pup on the beach which is apparently having a bit of a struggle but I kept my distance after a slightly heated discussion with 2 photographers about the pros and cons of taking photos from a sea kayak.
