"Cape Broyle"


Heading for the water falls on the north shore of Cape Broyle during our KNL father's day yearly paddle. An uneventful day as it turns out. Last year we were in the company of Greg Stamer, this year we had all locals I believe.

Tony playing in the beach swell at Lance Cove on Father's Day. Men must play and kayaking is good at bringing out the fun in everything.

"A Return"


Every great paddle has a return. Such was the Kayak Newfoundland and Labrador Father's Day paddle on Sunday.

Using a kayak to explore caves, might as well, they sure are captivating that way. Alex and I seem to be attracted to these black entrances. This cave in Cape Broyle was quite benign and did not go in very far.

"Twilight Skullls..."


Ralph skulling under the clouds this evening at St. Philips.

"ST. Philips Sessions..."


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.

"Bay Bulls"

Posted by Picasa

Apparantly this berg calved shortly after we finished our paddle around it yesterday. It would have been a wondrous sight to witness.

"The Bay Of Bulls......."

...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 Blue Line"


Getting a better look at that line anyhow!

"Tucked In Sandstone"


Tony below the outcrops of sandstone at waters edge. Stealthily maneuvering through rock channels.

"Going Green, Bay Bulls NFLD"

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.

"Dido Tony"


Just because you have one of me on your blog. ;-)
