I am sure if Mommy knew they were out this close to the edge at Flat Rock Point we'd be in a little hot water which would have felt a lot warmer than the 7 degrees today with strong winds blowing right off the ocean. The winds must have been gusting to 50-60 km or more today for sure. Gale warnings were in effect. This didn't hinder our little stroll but if Mommy new they were as close to the edge today as they got...as I got...we'd be in a little bit of hot water.
Riley and Brandy and I went on a hiking trip in Flatrock Newfoundland yesterday. The winds were high and the wave action on the waters was intense. The girls loved the trek. We also went out to Cape Spear and had a bit of a hike there as well. The winds there were even more intense and the spray from the crashing waves on the shore could be felt all along the trail. The dogs loved it......so did I.

Just a fun video I did before our Thursday paddling sessions at St. Philips on Sept.17th,2009. I was also practising with adding narration and fading in titles and such using my video maker program, so therefore this is rough. Had fun passing the afternoon on a Saturday though. So as I am re-entering my kayak in the video a couple guys show up and start asking questions, slowed down the rentry process just a bit. All in good fun.
There are four Nordkapps in this photo. Des's is on the far left and thenfrom the left is mine, Tony's and Malcolm's(LV). We had a nice evening on the waters of St. Philip's this past Thursday mulling around in boats again. The weather was spectacular and the sun was very intense. I thought I'd try something in photoshop to reverse or invert the image so that the shadows become bright and of course boat colors change to give this effect on the launch pad in St. Philip's.

I trust that Pete would attempt most things along our coast. This was a narrow entrance and exit and very dependant on small timely swell to avoid the sound of gelcoat on rock.....like I say....it's replaceable but the sound will still make you cringe. lol

Had to put you in here today Tony. You are my 1292nd post. It's kind of traditional. I named my Nordkapp today. It will be "Gull Feather" and I am having one air brushed on the deck of my kayak. Why you might ask? Simply because on any paddle I do on the coast I am always sure to have a paddling companion in a seagull and therefore I am never truely alone on any paddle. Thanks for the company bye's!
Today couldn't have been better for the annual Aquaforte paddle led by Dan M. Aquaforte is on the southern shore of the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland and this year has been spectaular for sunny weather in an area that is usually host to RDF, rain, dizzle, fog. There are kayak gods afterall.
