I arrive at Penarth waterfront early. Our destination, Flat Holm and Steep Holm, float in the early morning mist. It feels like late spring, the sun is out and the sea is like a duck pond.Today myself and Eurion are welcoming Mike Mayberry and Steve Bunston from Pembrokeshire to our home turf, and what a perfect day for it.
The tide are just coming out of springs and it's roughly mid flow, when it's at it strongest. It was going to take a big ferry angle to make this one.
Eurion and Mike
Our big sweep out into the channel has brought us directly above Flat Holm. We stop for a short break making the most of the calm conditions.
It off to the Captains Wife for a few pints and to discuss more kayak related topics to the delight of Hannah and Shelley. Another great paddle out to the Holms and great to meet up with Steve, Mike, Shelley and Eurion.
