This weekend saw a spring low tide. Mark and I decided to swim/climb/clamber our way along from Fishcombe Cove to Elberry Cove, a distance of no more than 2km. It took us 1hr 15m – of which about 25-30 mins swimming gently thru kelp and into micro beaches; we both have considerable experience bouldering; have no queasiness about sliding over large beds of kelp and we suited up to give us some protection from barnacles etc. Not for the inexperienced. And a word of caution, the side of Elberry Cove you entered is habituated with boys and there motor toys – jet skis and their like. Hug the shore!
