Dunworly Bay to Castletownshend 32km
We’re getting behind on these blogs, long days and reasonable weather compresses the camp time! So this is brief- we got on at a dreadful hour, paddled till the hands hurt even more, came ashore and put up the sopping tent and ate slept and did it all again… Done!
Having experienced the big swell yesterday we awoke in our river estuary shingle beach (which had only just been high enough for the swell surge ) and were out easily albeit against the tide flow –direct line to Galley head which is surrounded by surf beaches bad sign for us! Tide race helped us along and then another straight line to horse Island, we didn’t touch land today for 5hours….
with a head wind for the last hour. This rather killed our hope of getting round Toe head which can be exciting…. Ritchie and I had a walk round horse Island, saw the white flecks all over the sea and decided to head for the picture postcard which is Castletownshend We came across a spit which was full of canoe racks, Jim Kennedy runs his Atlantic Sea Kayaking from here. He was away and locals encouraged us to camp so we did! Ritchie and I took in a pub at Union Hall and our Guinness count is now heading in the right direction. And so are we!
