A trip of two halves

passing Hemp Stack

Back on the water after a long winter hiatus, the Menai joined my Isel today for a gentle paddle  from Scapa to St Marys. It was also an opportunity to try the new Werner carbon Corryvrecken paddle.

The longboat leads
 On the first part of the journey, we saw razorbills, cormorants,fulmars, eider duck, longtail duck.
The razorbills did not seem to mind us getting very close.

After a tea break at Deepdale we carried on, hopping through exposed rocks.

Difting over rockpools.
Both boats on the water.
Paddle tested and approved.
Mission accomplished.
