Great day to be out on the moor

We had a good turn out yesterday, I was the only group that took a camera so all the photos are of where I went! Stunning weather and well done to the girls who started to pick up the art of navigation.

A wet afternoon in the Plym

We avoided the rain for the start, but managed to get wet in the river anyway with some students even trying a head stand at the end

A misty sea kayak trip

We had a delayed start this morning as we waited for students to show up. Two out of the five made it in, some citing reasonable excuses while others were a no show. The select few headed out to Mount Batten and launched at Batten Bay. We headed out to the break water and once we stuck our heads around the corner we were exposed and the full weather hit us. We were unimpressed with this and so turned and headed for a hidden beach for lunch before deciding that discretion was the better part of valour and we headed home. Great day out rock hopping and being on the sea, not much of a view tho!
