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.

Oa, if it wasn't for the midges!
The dawn came gently on Islay's Mull of Oa. Banks of mist hung over the windless sea
Although the mist slowly burned off with the sun...
...the humidity was high and my camera kept misting up.
Another problem with the lack of wind was a ferocious midge attack. This made loading the kayaks a rapid affair before...
...we tackled the surf and studs to escape their myriad of fangs.
