I guess Gerard was on the water for some of the same reasons today. I first saw him on the beach when I was coming back from Cape Broyle head and when I paddled to shore to say hello, I asked how his paddle was goin' he just lifted his arms to the sky as if to say "this is it". It really was. A beautiful sunny day, another solo paddler and so I left Gerard in his kayak space and paddled on. This is him headin' for Cape Broyle.
