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.

A lonely shore on the Solway.
I took a break on lonely Knockbrex beach which is guarded by its folly.
The sun and southerly wind were surprisingly warm so...
...,despite being early October, I went for a (quick) swim. The crowds of summer are long gone and I enjoyed the peace of this beautiful place on my own.
Then it was time to catch the wind for a brisk paddle back...
...to the delightful beach of Smuggler's Cove where I launch.
