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.

Another fabulous day on the Clyde
Flat calm start to the day.
We took the ferry to Bute then headed over the West Kyle of Bute to Ardlamont Point on the mainland.
We then headed down pat the west side of Inchmarnock before heading back to Bute.
Of course it did not stay calm and we had a brisk paddle into the wind for the last 9km.
It does not end there. I got the car stuck in the mud just as it was getting dark and the rain started and we only had 30 mins to catch the last ferry! Fortunately a friendly farm lad came with a very large JCB and pulled me out with a huge chain. (I had my tow hitch on.) We made the ferry by the skin of our teeth.
What a day!
