Christmas Eve is upon us and so is our (now) traditional paddle out to Flat Holm. The forecast wasn't promising again, but our hopes were up. I met up with Taran and Jules at Penarth waterfront for a paddle over to Flat Holm on the last of the ebbing tide aiming to arrive around mid day.
A bit of a sticky carry down to the water.
Lunch on Flat Holm. Jules turn to pull a face, and yet another rainbow.
We take a stroll up to the light house while the tide turns. (Pic by Taran)
A cheesy pose with my Santa hat.
Then it was back on the water for the crossing back. It was nice and lumpy to start with then flattened right out about mid way. I mentioned to Taran that this time last year I would have felt uncomfortable in such conditions, what a difference a year makes. Mind you the boat helps a lot. (Another two pics by Taran)
Another great paddle with good company to celebrate the festive season but hopefully not to finish the year quite just yet. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!
