Paddle buddy Isle of Man - Sunday 13th July 08.

Eleven paddlers took to the water at Port Erin and headed for the
Calf of Man with a short stop to look at the basking shark sighted in the sound.

The weather was superb and the welcome was even better !

The stunning coastline just south from Port Erin
My new "grass fibre" sea kayak , isnt she a beauty !! my campsite scars in the Isle of Man,
which is located bang in the middle of the Irish sea between N. Ireland and England .
I was told it takes only 10 minutes to climb to the top of the Island - aye by Helicopter !
maybe , my feet are still sore ! but the view was worth every stride .
Looking back to Peel south to north from the Calf of Man the little island just off
Isle of Man .

Some nice tide races are to be found here , Chicken rock in the distance.
The harbour for a little break . A big thank you to everyone and I can't wait to go back . ps I will not go mountain climbing again Jessica I swear .
