Clear Solway tide

I slowly paddled east from Rumblekirn to a break in the cliffs.

By its nature the Solway Firth, with its extensive sand flats at low tide, tends to have cloudy water...

... but a period of light easterly winds had allowed the sediment to settle.

I enjoyed a peaceful swim in the unusually clear waters.

Another 14km Solway paddle.
