Keep your eyes out

I was in Hope Cove this week when I helped a guy to start his outboard. He was in a sit on top kayak and had his dog with him. He started out from Bournemouth last week and was enroute to Sennen. Just focused my mind to think about adventures and how cool that is. If you see him give him a wave or some assistance if possible.

Let's hope it's an adventure and not a rescue.
