After a whole week stuck at Gore Point waiting for the weather to improve, I finally managed to paddle yesterday.
Today the wind is up again, so I’ve found a pub with wifi so I can upload some pictures of the trip so far.
The weather has been pretty horrendous – two inches of rain one day, thick fog another, frosts on the beach, snow, gale force winds, horizontal hail …
The wind chill was enough to turn boiling water stone cold again in the time it took to carry my kelly kettle back to the tent!
Still enjoying it nevertheless.
I gave the sensitive Blakeley Point a wide berth yesterday, but many of the curious seals swam out to see me. The warden said “At least you didn’t land a helicopter on it like that bloke from Jamiroquoi the other day”.
