Chance Cove to Rantem

On Monday evening Trent and I did a short evening paddle from Chance Cove to Rantem and back, a total distance of about 10kms. It was a beautiful evening, not a breath of wind and just a minor swell. With the high tide it made for a bit of fun rock hopping.There were a lot of eagles around, more than I've seen in any other part of the island. At one point we counted 7 on the cliffs and trees around us.

Anyhow, here are some pics. I had an old 3MP camera with me, so they aren't the best.

Spectacular coastline

Trent timed this one just right.....I didn't when it was my turn

Blow hole. Some video of it here

Pretty neat
