Wintry Day at Puffin Island

Amongst all of the freezing temperatures, rain showers and strong winds of late, it is always possible to find a lull in the weather and a sheltered stretch of water.

Barry, Stephanie and I found the northern end of the Menai Straits just perfect for a mornings paddle in the shadow of Snowdonia's sugar-dusted hills.

We crossed Puffin sound to find that the grey seals were as playful and inquisitive as ever. All along the rocky shore line there were herring gulls and shags, whilst flocks of small wading birds darted amongst us only inches from the waves.
