Some careful tidal planning.

 The chill SE wind meant we had to wear hats and pogies as we crossed the expanse of Culzean Bay.

 Because it had been calm the previous day and because the light wind was blowing cross offshore the conditions as we approached...

 ...Carnage Corner, south west of Dunure, were calm. These were rather different to the conditions we had encountered here on our last trip.

This time, there was no dumping surf inside the harbours so Jim was quite happy to land his sparkly new Taran first. The tide was rising so some careful planning was required to calculate how far up the beach to carry the kayaks.

One factor in this calculation was how long we would spend in the pub. As David was with us we hauled them way above the HW mark!
