Winter climbing on Saturday, sea kayaking on Sunday

Saturday and two Spanish dinners came and went and Sunday arrived. The weather forecast has predicted a lull before another Atlantic weather system and Ian had suggested a paddle on the Tay. We arrived at the boat shed at 10 am whilst the sun was shining but when we launched the kayaks clouds already moved in from the West. 
 We crossed the Tay to Tentsmuir Forest. Here are Amy and Katie...
 ... and here is one of the many Eider ducks on the sandbanks that are flooded at high tide. 
 Here Ana arrives for our lunch break... 
 ... and here we are with Dundee in the far distance. 
 We crossed over to the Monifieth shooting range (no flags and no shots) for a comfy break and launched into some moderate waves. Here are Ian and Katie. 
 The incoming tide carried us towards the Ferry at 8 km/h. Here are Ana and Amy...
 ... and here Ana arrives after our 18 km paddle. 
Winter climbing on Saturday, sea kayaking on Sunday. Could be worse!
