One headland after another as we make our way to Bauline. Tony mentioned that the hills descending to the ocean below reminded him of New Zealand. Paddling the western side of the Avalon Peninsula was calm for the most part today but the winds did pick up with intermittent but persistent gusts that kept you vigilant lest your paddle be wretched from your grip. The rain was not too heavy but was more soothing than bothersome. It was starting to get cool however when we hit Bauline. It is nice to be able to hug so closely to the shore as the rebound waves will push you along and seeing how we were in the lea of the land it was a nice cruising pace.
