The Skerries - the hard way!
Sunday, November 12, 2006

I hadn't been to the Skerries for about a year, but now I've been two weekends in a row. Barry and I left left from Cemlyn, just like Clare, Axel and I did, except that we decided to ferry glide out there against the tide! There was a reasonably strong westerly wind and quite a lot of rebounding waves off the north coast of Angelsey so our eddy hop up to Cemlyn was quite bouncy with many waves splashing in our faces. Great! We started the ferry glide from Cemlyn and surprised ourselves that we managed to make it to the Skerries against the tide in quite choppy conditions. I think I was just hungry and wanted to be able to land for lunch! I'm not surprised I was hungry as the journey out there took us over 2 and a half hours! We were both pretty tired by the time we arrived. Going back to Cemlyn with the tide and the waves took a mere 45 minutes but still required energy as the waves were quite hard to surf, but we couldn't resist. I didn't take my camera so here's a photo of Barry at South Stack a few weeks ago, when we went round the Stacks with Alun and Greer.
