St. Philips this morning


9h00 kayaking just didn't sound as appealing as it had the night before." Lee time to go kayaking" my wife whispered. I responded as any guy attempting to protect his slumber would. " I aint going". She pulled my blankets off....Pure evil. "You'll regret it later" she said. One eye forced open; I knew she had a point. Off to St. Philips.


Winter storm watches issued out over the airways along my drive to meet the other guys.  Aside from a bit of snow the day was perfect. 


With a very high tide we stuck close to shore exploring new little gaps in rocks in which we could fit our kayaks through. 


 The forecasted winds we had hoped for never came to fruition' but none the less it was a nice day on the water. A bit of conversation; and a ton of follow the leader.


Our day ended around noon with a coffee and chat at the seaside restaurant. A great way to start the day. Thanks to the guys for the invite.

A bit of a hurried account of today's excursion as I'm awaiting the final bit of sewing to be completed; so I can start in heat shrinking and painting my qajaq tonight.

  3. glad you came along Lee. Hope you join us on more of our paddles. Some of them can get really interesting and a whole lot more fun, but all within the boundaries of safe paddling of course...
