Paddles with an Anas acuta...... unashamedly biased toward the sea kayak of that name (actually the voyages of two boats, one 'traffic over gold', one 'quill')

A cautionary tale.. Lorgill Bay
Lorgill Bay, note the stony nature of the beach. Last time I was here, heavy swell had closed out the bay. We couldn't see beyond the breakers and seriously debated a blind surf onto what we imagined might be a sandy beach. The long tiring paddle on to Loch Bracadale in rough conditions wasn't appealing at all. This time with a flat sea we could land and camp. Oh, how pleased I was that we hadn't gone for that suicidal surf landing. Moral of the tale, look before you leap, and if you can't, don't leap!
