Sea Kayaking through the gates of Hell!
The Cuma reported a force 4 to 5 SW wind on the far side of the Hirta / Soay gap.
As we went down the west side of Stac Soay, the gap between it and Stac Biorach looked like the gates of Hell!
Fortunately we did not need to pass through to Hades as a tunnel appeared leading right through to the other side of Stac Soay.
Unfortunately there will now be a short intermission. The staff of seakayakphoto come are headed for the fair isle of Islay. We have heard tales of many shore side distilleries, with magical names like Bruichladdich, Bowmore, Laphroaig, Lagavulin, Ardbeg, Caol Ila and Bunnahabhain.
We may be gone for some time.......
