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')

Home from home, or a bivi at Long Ledge

 The paddle over in glorious sunshine, force 5-6 westerly raised a lively sea in places, but just added to the sparkle.
 Once in the shelter of the island all was calm.
 Selecting our bivouac spot.
 Home from home. The night tide was 40cm higher than the day tide and a passing French ferry just at HW led to slight concern about wet toes from its wake. No worries, although it did dampen our fire down.
 Orchids on the landslip above us.
 Packing away.
All that remained was the paddle home, misty at first, but the sun came our before we reached Eastney
