Marazion to Mousehole

Only the second sea paddle that we have managed this year because of the storms, but what a difference from the near apocalyptic gale on St Valentines day. Warm sun, calm sea and a feeling that spring is just around the corner.

An easy launch from Marazion beach then following the shoreline past Long Rock, Penzance and Newlyn, finally reaching our destination of Mousehole but dissapointed to see that the harbour was shut with it's storm gate still firmly in place. We met some other kayaker's at Newlyn beach that informed us of a male dolphin that became very amorous with one of the kayaks on their return from Moushole about half an hour before us.

Wildlife Observed: Great northern diver (3), Fulmar (3), Guillemot (lots), Razorbill (lots), Oystercatcher (lots), Curlew (8)

St Michaels Mount
Long Rock
Penzance Harbour
Penzance Lido

Newlyn Habour
Penlee Point
St Clement's Isle
