From Grassholm, we made the decision to go further out, and head for the Smalls lighthouse, approx 25miles from land. This was made hoping that we would at least see some dolphins on the way out, sadly, we didn't though.

The following day, Friday (today), we left Milford at about 1400hrs, and turned left at St Annes to go out to Caldey Island. Anyone else doing this, please make contact with the Castlemartin range first to ensure they are not firing when you wish to go through. Although they were programmed to be firing all week this week, Bern called them, and found that there was no firing going on today, so we were able to proceed.
Here we are just dropping anchor on a beach the west side of Caldey island.

Now heading to Tenby at 25 knots on flat sea, looking back at Caldey on the left, and the mainland on the right.

Last picture *phew* - Tenby now in shot. Loads of people on the beaches at high tide, which made them look well packed. Although there was a breeze on land this morning, at sea, there was nothing apart from a gentle small swell. Temps just over 25 degrees C, water temp at 18 degrees C around Tenby according to Garmin
From here, I headed back for the 1hr journey to Milford, and left Bern, JCW, and JCW's wife to stop off at Tenby and look around.
These are just a few pics... the other 200 or so pics are on my website under 'gallery' on the 2nd page.....

Thanks for the great pics and the story Alex, very interesting.

Cyanide and Magellan Alpha will be in Milford Marina on the evening of next wednesday after the first leg of our 'Round the UK' and Orkney Expedition trip.

It's nice to see what some of the coast we will be passing looks like.
