Tea, custard doughnuts and cake

Tim could only manage a couple of hours, and Rich is supposed to be taking it easy after his knee op, so rock hopping from Cable Bay (Porth Trecastell) was the choice for a late afternoon paddle

I don't think I have ever seen the water this calm here, or the beach so quiet.

A calm and sunny afternoon

With the addition of sunshine, a slight dilemma was created - dress for paddling or immersion ....

.... but you only had to dip your hand in the water to know what the sensible option was.

Snow in Snowdonia

Superb views on the way round to Cwyfan for tea, custard doughnuts and cake.

Tim paddled the Tahe Greenlander on the return leg which included enough chop to make you feel as if you were in a sea kayak.

Approaching Cable bay from the South, the entrance is maybe not as obvious as expected

but we fought our way through the customary, massive surf landing to the beach
