My last two kayak trips have been disaster. We sit and follow every weather forecast religiously, we look at surf heights and wind speeds, we follow the web cams as soon as there is light.
And we still end up driving for an hour and hitting a wall of impenetrable fog. Hanging around in the car park for two and half hours hoping it'll clear isn't a bundle of laughs.
Why are we still getting these fog banks this late in the year? This is more typical of May / early June, not mid-July. Guess it's basically because the sea temperatures are way down to what they normally are by now. Plain and simple - no sun, no warm air currents. And far, far too much rain.
Second attempt: oh dear, what was that windguru? Almost no wind and a 4 foot swell with an 8 second period?
Please, please, can we have some summer? It's nearly autumn for god's sake!!! :-)
