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')

Already as warm as summer?
Today, felt as warm as many a summer day. Pretty odd for mid-February! Must have been getting on for 15C and the water was warm as well. Just as well since the warmth was courtesy of a steady F6 southerly with more vigorous gusts.
Too tiring to go far, we played in the waves, paddling upwind and uptide and surfing back. Exhaustion set in after 2 hours, nice to go out and get wet.
No pictures of the surfing back which was stop-go, a breaking wave from the side, a breaking wave from behind type of paddling. Even taking pictures on the upwind leg was wobbly enough.
