I left Llandudno this morning to cross directly to Formby. I weaved my way past the wind farms in the morning (with lots of new turbines under construction).
In the afternoon, it became a bit choppy as the tide turned against the wind, and I had to dodge some large ships and speed ferries arriving at Liverpool, and pick my moment carefully to cross the shipping channel. This became tricky as everything disappeared everytime I was in a trough, and a few waves were breaking over my boat.
I saw some figures on the beach, but wasn’t really sure if they were people or the Anthony Gormley sculptures that the coastguard said are somewhere around here.
I felt pretty exhausted by the time I arrived at Formby, but it was a good day out nevertheless and 30 more miles are behind me.
