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.

The tide being right for jaw-jaw at Carlandcheek.
VHF proved useful to get Phil and Mike to take a breather at...
...the caves and waterfall of Carlandcheek near the Heads of Ayr.
There is a break in the volcanic rocks that predominate on this coast.
Weathered sandstone cliffs rise steeply from the beach.
At full spring tide you can't land here. At low water, a reef prevents landing.
We took the opportunity of the tide being right to take second luncheon and sample some 10 year old Jura followed by a 12 year old Glenfiddich. We then spent a pleasant post prandial jaw-jaw on the beach at Carlandcheek. We revelled in our healthy, athletic lifestyle.
