Searching for the natural arch, Sanda Stour
Sanda Stour was the last of a series of skerries forming a chain of links (and thus only short crossings) on our way to Hildasay. At its south end, the map shows a natural arch, the sort of thing sea kayakers are always keen to find and paddle through. Unfortunately, in this case, the only arch we saw was well above water level - a window in the rocks behind the nearest paddler, and no caves to play in, either ! This geo is quite calm, but we were now far enough south to be starting to see swell just outside its shelter, as the protection afforded by Skelda Ness for the skerries further north was less effective here.
