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.

No room at the lighthouse.
The SW coast of Little Cumbrae has a remote feel despite its proximity to Glasgow, the biggest city in Scotland.
The sea is often bumpy here as the tide sweeps round its headlands...
...but today all was calm as we continued north towards the lighthouses.
We saw some figures standing...
...on the rocks beneath...
...the old light house.
It was the guys from Clydebank and Drumchapel Kayak Club again. The winter storms have broken up the old concrete slipway so there was not much room for landing, especially with my knees.
So we stayed afloat and enjoyed another chat before setting off towards Millport.
