Disembodied heads on the return from Ailsa Craig!
After our exploration of the lonely rock of Ailsa Craig we set off on our return journey in glorious May afternoon sunshine.
It was hot work in the sun as what little wind there was began to die away as Ailsa Craig began to grow smaller on the western horizon.
By the time we were approaching Lendalfoot on the Ayrshire coast, the wind had dropped completely and we paddled accompanied by crazy reflections, some with disembodied heads.
The tide was well out as we landed in the reefs over which we had paddled just a few hours ago. On the horizon Ailsa Craig looked distant again but now we had an exact measure of that distance.
