Imagine you are at the edge of the sea on a day when it is difficult to say where the land ends and the sea begins and where the sea ends and the sky begins. Sea kayaking lets you explore these and your own boundaries and broadens your horizons. Sea kayaking is the new mountaineering.

Bob the seal.
It was low tide as David, Phil and I made our way down the beach at Maidens.
As we paddled towards Barwhin Point...
...the Troon Trent class lifeboat, RNLIB Jim Moffat, sped past...
...and disappeared over the horizon towards Ailsa Craig.
Phil seemed unaware that he was being followed by Bob the Seal.
Bob then turned his attention towards me.
As he was swimming powerfully towards me, I tried to work out whether he was common or grey,...
Then I spotted the collar.
He then emerged from the water in a most unseal like way. It was Bob, Tony's dog.
Tony had arrived at Barwhin and decided to join us on the water, after Bob was safely back on the lead.
