"Early In The Morning......"
Buoys are useful for many things and though this is a mooring buoy it could otherwise have been used to indicate the direction of current flow or even to calculate the current speed. This day though there is zero current and actually there is at most times in the Avalon Peninsula area of NFLD, little current to paddle in. Tide differences from high to low is about 0-1 meter. Though currents can be useful, (horizontal coastal currents) for moving you along, in wind, against you, they can be a pain in the ......kayak seat. This was an early morning paddle at about 8 am in early Feb. 2008. This shot is around Blow Me Down, NFLD looking across Conception Bay to St. Thomas....Portugal Cove due East, about 24km away.......as the Gull flies!
