Portscatho to Portloe

Kevin, Guy and I go on a super smooth paddle from Portscatho to Portloe via Gull Rock. The water was like a millpond across Gerrans Bay and only became disturbed when we came across a gentle tidal flow between Nare Head and Gull Rock. The trip from the rock to Portloe was straightforward and Portloe is a little gem of a Cornish fishing village, with a small harbour wall and safe landing.

We had an uneventful trip back in calm waters, the coastline is pretty with many sandy beaches between Nare Head and Portscatho.

Wildlife Observed: Fulmar, Common tern, Oystercatcher, Kestrel.
