The final cave, well hardly a cave, more a narrow fissure in the rock. They went in one by one, paddles on decks, hand propulsion against the sides and disappeared. I’d already had one altercation with a rock and decided to stay outside ‘on duty’ having done enough damage for one day. Eventually they all came out backwards, obviously no room to turn around inside.

An excellent paddle with LCC members – thanks for the company, arrangements and car shuttle !
