Mullion to Housel Bay

A five and a half hour kayak from Mullion to Housel Bay via the Lizard Point. It was the hottest day of the year so far 13/7/13 and paddling was hard work against the tidal stream on the outward and return journey.

Plenty of seals to keep us amused and much drinking water consumed to stay hydrated. Even a couple of swims were necessary to cool off. The sea was crystal clear, glassy at times with almost no swell. Plenty of tidal currents to keep us on our toes though!
