Trefor to Menai bridge - day 43

After a lot of discussion, looking at maps and the five day forecast we decided to not go to Scotland via the Isle of Man. Bit gutted as we were both looking forward to it, but with all the northerly wind there would have been a lot of waiting around for the crossings. So we've decided to follow the coast around which means today we had a lovely paddle up to and through the Menai Straits. Beautiful scenery and lots of shelter from the wind. On arriving at Menai Bridge we saw and met more sea kayakers in one hour than we have done for the entire rest of the trip! We met Phil Clegg, who gave us some advice from his circumnavigation of Britain a few years ago and kindly put our kit and boats in his container. We were then picked up and looked after by Pete, Kelly and their family (the owners of Summit to Sea - the outdoor shop on Anglesey). After showers, proper beds, lots of food, talk of; kit, kayaking, and riding your bike without stabilisers we were refreshed and ready for the off again. Thanks very much all, we felt thoroughly welcomed.
