Hilbre Island - 24th March 2012

Quick jaunt around Hilbre Island with Arnaud. Launched from the slipway to the S of the Marine Lake in West Kirby. Paddled out and around the island and stopped for lunch at the pebble/shell beach at the S tip of Hilbre.
Round trip of 10km, must have been paddling for about 1:40 in total. SE wind was a bit stronger than we would have liked making the return leg hard work for a while. Pictures taken with the Fuji S2950 - seems OK, some lost detail in shadows though, but can't grumble.

Waiting for the tide to come in
Lunch stop - couple of other parties doing same trip
Hilbre N End - Note new toy!
Birds on Little Hilbre
Dinghies on the Marine Lake
