The Skerries – Sunday, 16 April

An atmospheric trip to The Skerries, from Cemlyn, with Ed.  The spring ebbing tide and force 4 southerly winds provided wonderful sea conditions, particularly the superb surf at Carmel Rocks.  At The Skerries the seals were as playful as ever and the puffins were back for the nesting season.
