New Harbour

On Good Friday, Angie and I got out for an afternoon paddle in New Harbour. It was very foggy, but the air was warm, and there was literally no wind. We left the slipway near the fish plant, and paddled along the north side of New Harbour for about 5kms, until we were pretty close to Hopeall Head, before we turned around. And of course, on the way back we stopped for a lunch of hot chocolate and ravioli.

Another great day on the water. We also saw a seal on the way back, it popped up about 15 feet from Angie's kayak, checked us over, and dove under again.

Not a bad way to start off our Easter break.

A layer of fog hugged the coastline

Normally, you would see the Bellevue Peninsula off in the distance, but not this day

Awesome stuff. Hope to see you guys out there on the water this summer.

Were currently planning a hopeall to chapel arm paddle, should be great if conditions agree.

We'll be around most of the summer, drop me a line when you are going to be in the area and we'll try and hook up for a paddle.
