Where it all began

The place: Cape Broyle, Newfoundland
The year: yesteryear.....ok, it wasn't that long ago, Summer 2002

Over the weekend I came across these pictures of our first time kayaking. We did a tour with Stan Cook Sea Kayak Tours in Cape Broyle, and oh yes, we were hooked. Every year after that we vowed to buy our own kayaks and have our own adventures, and in the summer of 2005 we finally made that dream come true, and we haven't looked back since.

Unfortunately, given the latest weather trends here in the tropical north Atlantic, summer paddling seems as far away as ever. Snow, freezing rain and wind are all we see in the forecast, with no end in sight. During these times, its fun to look back on old pictures and think about how it all started. I think I was about 20lbs lighter back then, and Angie about 20lbs heavier :-)
