WEll it was St. Philips again this evening for a bunch of kayakers from the club. Getting together having fun and learning new skills for some and practising old ones for others. The weather was cooperative and conducive for the exercises we indulged in. Brian is being assisted here by Dean but Brian generated quite a bit of forward momentum on the back deck by using his arms on the side as well as the feet to propel forward. Brian is one of the most skilled paddlers I've seen in Newfoundland. He is amazing to watch and learn from. Needless to say it is to the pond for me. Much to hone in on at this point.

...and Bergs as it turns out today on a paddle in Bay Bulls NFLD with my friend Tony. We always seem to get into something when paddling here on The Rock. Today I guess was no different.
Tony being Dwarfed again. In NFLD you always seem to be dwarfed when kayaking, either by bergs, cliffs, sea stacks, caves, waves or boats..there is always something wayyy bigger.
Zoning in on the blueness in this berg. It had a stripe that went through it on one section.
The greens today were astounding. The water, the grass on rock, yes on rock, The kelp under water and seaweed of course made for a spectacular paddle. What an adventurous part of the Avalon Peninsula. Which is why Outfitters also offer kayak tours out of here.
Tony Ejoying the green theme of today.
Even the H2o outside the caves were green.
