I had set myself up for a paddle across the Bristol Channel, along the east Exmoor coast and hop back across the channel before darkness. I was in a battle between my heart and head. The latter was concerned about the forecast. Southerly force 3-4, gusting 5-6 in the evening with heavy, thundery showers. It would have been a long day on my own so put it on the burner for another day.
Meanwhile I needed a short local paddle now to fill my day. High water was about 1130 so I opted for a trip out to Flat Holm for the second time this week but taking in Monkstone Lighthouse also.
