Sea Kayaking to the Skerries

Today I went out to enjoy the sea, journeying by kayak to the Skerries (small rocky islands 3-4 km off the North coast of Anglesey). We started at Church Bay and managed to cross on slack water landing on the Island around midday with friends James (see Adventure Elements) and Mark.
The return crossing was a little more exciting due to tidal race starting, running in the opposite direction to the 15mph winds. This created big standing waves that were breaking in places and required a lot of ferry gliding to return to Carmel head.
One porpoise seen, lots of seals and blue sky and the hands were only slightly chilled - a good day.
