The Kimmeridge Lantern Kayaking
This was a continuation of the exploration of the south coast of England and Weymouth Bay, Dorset Region. The route begins in the picturesque Kimmeridge Bay, with a small fishing harbour, a mini maritime museum and a unique lighthouse on top of a small hill. The route ran along high rock cliffs and rocks protruding from the water in some places. Halfway through the route, as on the previous trip, I stopped on the shores of the Lulworth Cove lagoon, which the water had carved like a huge jellyfish, washing sand from between the rocky frames of the shore. By the way, ironically of the times, this fabulous lagoon, slightly characterised, played "Nova Scotia Safe Zone" in a Hollywood production starring Brat Pit, „World War Z”.
Back to Kimmeridge Bay, with favourable wind and current I moped over some places an average of 7 places 8 km/h. Just a glimpse of the majestic sunset over the English Channel and the trip is over.
The Durdle Door Arch Kayaking
It is impossible to imagine a better trip for a maiden voyage for a kayak. There was everything what the young, beauty cadets and the old, ugly jack-tars like the most. There was, riding on the roof as on the trolley, pulling, pushing, surfing on the picks and hard work against the waves, flooding, waterboarding, rubbing plating and salt rubbing wounds, burning with the sun and cooling with the wind…
I would not ever mention it but thanks to some unprecedented circumstances, (I don't want to archive the reason for the future memo) the places normally crowded remained un-commercialized and not so overloaded. No parking and road fees, as well. Unusual experience in the resorts like that but I was not missing the fish and chips Instead of that the trip offered a spectacular views and physical workout. Paddling under the head of the drinking Atlantic (channel) water, Brontosaur - unforgettable.
