Taran launched off the bank I noticed this tiny sand eel uncovered by his boat.
Taran for this shot. We carried along the shore side of the sand bank, it went on and on and on, just when we thought it had reach it's end it turned the corner and carried on into the horizon. I have never seen in so uncovered.
Taran showing how easily walking on water can be done, I bet Jesus didn't do it 1.5 nautical miles off shore!
Turns out it wasn't that easy after all, a small slip and a boat full of water, back to the bar to empty it.
With the sun high in the sky it felt warm, early spring hopefully. It must have been warm because I didn't wear my poggies, the first time in months.
We set off again through the small breakers, I set up my camera on my deck. Was a bit scared I was going to damage it the way is was being smacked back.
The sun was out the sea was calm and it made for easy paddling back along the yellow cliffs.
Not much of a video but I love the sound of that bell, gives it a really nautical feel. Dun-dun, du-du-du-du-du-du,dun-dun!! half expect jaws to pop up.
On the last approach to Llantwit the mist lifted again revealing the breakers off the rocky plateau. Once again the waves didn't seem too bad until two more huge breakers swept by dwarfing the surfers riding them. That was enough to put me off...Taran however decided to chance his luck, setting off between the sets. I'll let him tell you how that ended. I made my way around the plateau to where we launched, a bit of local knowledge allowing me to land safely.
A mixed bag of conditions turned this trip into very interesting day. I was also pleased to have landed on Nash Sand Bar again after my previously hurried last visit. The Knap, Barry to Brean Down, on the other side of the channel next week all things being well. Sorry Taran I wasn't getting up 4am this weekend!
