4th Aug Tues Eve paddle

In spite of the wind - a vigourous SW with quite a few white horses - a party of 6 (Peter, Charlotte, Oliver, Naomi, John and Paul) set off from Caol beach. We managed across to the an Caol island which gave shelter from the waves but not much from the wind (enough to keep two windsurfers happy). Then on the rising tide we just managed to get across the shallows to the mouth of the Lochy. We paddled up the Lochy as far as the railway bridge. Coming back the conflict between river current, tide and wind made for some interesting ferry glides. Thankfully by the time we returned along the beach the wind had died - slightly!
