Thunder Bay to South Ronaldsay

An early start on the morning after the solstice, from Sandwick in South Ronaldsay to Saint Margaret's Hope.  

with my fabulous new paddle from Joe O Blenis!

 Not only beautiful to look at but exactly the measurements to fit me and very satisfying to paddle with.
looking sooth towards the Pentland Firth

incredible sandstone rock striations
 Reassuringly we passed plenty of nesting seabirds around Harrabrough Head,
approaching the Altar
and felt the tide gently but effectively draw us north as we left the Altar.
from inside the Altar.
 Across Widewall Bay and past Hoxa Head.
we eventually arrived in Cromarty Square in The Hope.


The first 15 km of many with my new stick.
