Light at the End of the Tunnel


Another late afternoon paddle, trying to make the most of what light remained. The reflections were great for taking photo's.

I did a lap around the bay before heading back up the River Taff. I kept myself entertained listening to my VHF, there was a boat on the other side of the barrage in need of assistance from the lifeboat.

Under the bride near the Millennium Stadium there was a flashing glow at the other end.

I reached the stadium and turned back.

Reaching the slipway it was now pitch black. The link road bridge was now lit up like a runway. Another relaxing paddle on the water to get me away from the commotions of life.

Hi Stuart,
Was that the Channel View Centre
slipway and did you have to pay ?

I went off the slipway oposite the sports center on Jim Driscoll Road. I didn't know you had to pay, I wouldn't anyway. I sometimes launch on the Ely side off Dunleavy Drive but you have to go off the rivers edge. Another option is behind Up&Under off the rivers edge again next to the slipway. If all else fails launch from Penarth near high water and haul it over the barrage!
