First Paddle of the Season

Although the forecast was far from perfect, (the usual spring time RDF: rain, drizzle and fog), the air temperature was 8 degrees and there was absolutely no wind. Sounds like a perfect day to get out on the water and get my sea legs back.

Me, Ang, Trent and Andrea left Spread Eagle, Trinity Bay and paddled over to Little Ridge and back. A great way to pass away a few hours on a Sunday afternoon. All the ice had gone out of the bay, but there were a few bits of sea ice around here and there. We also saw a few eagles and ducks along the way. This is a very interesting stretch of coastline, and is quickly becoming one of my favourite places to paddle. The fact that its 10 minutes from my house helps :-)

Here are a few shots of the day.
