Hilbre Island Trip 28th October by Martin Page

Hilbre Island 28th October

Sunday dawned bright and sunny, this was all Paul’s idea and he picked an ideal day for a trip out to Hilbre. 20 LCC paddlers gathered at West Kirby sharing a busy slipway with sailing club, plus another 12 members of Deva club making 32 kayaks on the water.

We set off for the island in perfect conditions, passed Little Eye and quickly on to Hilbre.

Some took the option of a leisurely lunch and ‘sunbathing’ on the beach, rest of us set off around north side of the island to play in rougher conditions.

After a brief chat on the beach tide had turned and time to head back for West Kirby.

A bit of surfing on the way back, we all made it to slipway before tide went out.
