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.

An early Christmas and a shaggy dog or two at Bracken Bay.
The sun had not yet risen above the Heads of Ayr when...
...we stopped for a break in the still frosty dunes of Bracken Bay. Katie had not paddled with us before and so she was very pleasantly surprised when she discovered that...
...David's flask contained not tea but hot mulled wine.
We were all surprised when David opened a wide mouthed flask full of hot Christmas pudding topped with brandy butter. Katie's cheeks were soon glowing in the chill air, though I am not sure if this was due to the mulled wine or due to a succession of David's shaggy dog stories. He is after all, not just a veterinarian but a raconteur!
