"Hunting Caplin"

I was weathered in

I was weathered in at this little cove just at the entrance to Brigus harbour on the side of the light. The winds were howling, it was the first time that I actually felt the wind blow me right across the water regardless that my rudder was down. I literally could not paddle but I was close to the cliff side and held on to the ledge with my boat leaned into the cliff and the waves washing under for about thirty minutes. I got a lull and then paddled into this little cove. I had something to eat and was watching these birds maneuver in flight in the howling wind to feed on the caplin at shores edge. This one was getting ready to dive. It's wings and body were so tensioned by the winds.
