Gannets and Ice Cream

Last Sunday saw nine paddlers set off from Seacliffe Beach to make the short crossing to the Bass Rock in glorious sunshine.  Although it was quite early in the season a good number of gannets had arrived and were busy squabbling over premium nesting spots.  But I’m guessing maybe only 1/3rd to 1/2 of the ultimate total!  A circumnavigation of the rock was followed by lunch back on the mainland and a leisurely paddle to North Berwick, where certain of our number abandoned their boats to go in search of ice cream!

Paddlers: Billy, Jean, Celia, Paul, Neil, Brian, Stuart, Tim, Sue.

Thanks to Billy, Neil and Paul for the photos.
