Avondale in the Evening

Last week me, Chislett and Travis Marshall, went out for a few hours in Avondale. Always a great location for a short paddle. 10kms in about 2 hrs. A few photos below:

Chapel Arm

My wife is in the Dominican Republic with her friends, my daughter is with her grandparents, so that for me means: paddle as much as possible. After dropping Heidi off in Chance Cove me and Chislett hit the water in Chapel Arm for a few hours in the afternoon. There was a bit of a breeze and some dandy wind waves to play in. We paddled on the eastern side of the arm as far as Little Ridge, where we stopped for a short lunch, then surfed our way back to the slipway. As a bonus, on our way back a minke whale surfaced right behind us! Scared the crap out of me, but was awesome all the same :-)

Altogether about 8kms and just under 2 hrs. Here are a few pics.
