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')

Gale 8 gusting 9

Luckily we were on dry land.

Some of you might recognise this corner of the Lakes; so accessible, yet so well hidden.

The wind whipping the spindrift off the ridge. Walking today was like paddling; tough going head-down into the gale, difficult to maintain the transit across the wind and then being pushed only too fast over the snow on the downwind leg, a low brace would have been handy on occasions.

The most fun that you can have on dry land?
