Evening at Aberthaw
A very muddy Limpert Bay
Due to weather, work commitments and the fact it gets dark
around 5pm, I haven't had the chance to venture out in my
kayak. With my last customer of the day canceling and
the winds finally dying down I had a two hour window to
get out for a quick paddle down my local bay.
Looking to the West toward Llantwit Major and Nash Point
The water intake tower which provides water to the power
Station for cooling
Aberthaw Power Station
The outfalls which spew out millions of gallons of warm
water back out into the bay from the cooling tanks
I paddled as far as Fontagary and turned back. The calm
conditions gave me chance to perfect my forward stroke.
I timed it just right as it got dark just as I loaded the car.
I think a towing trolley is my next buy. It was spot
on low tide when I got back to the bay and the walk up
the beach was a killer! Not to mention the mud and tons
of sea weed!
