Lunch stop in Brindister Voe
During a week of high winds and rough seas, it was difficult to find a sheltered route to paddle in Shetland. Brindister Voe gives the westerlies little fetch to build waves, but as the open sea was approached to the north, a building swell gave some idea of how serious conditions could become. A retreat to this little beach gave us time to consider our options, all of which would be committing to water we could not see in advance, with no hope of retreat against the wind. Discretion being the better part of valour, we turned back into the Voe.
