“A Moonlight Paddle…No Moon"

Wow! It’s been three months and my pictures are crappy but I’m on the water. Took a break from kayaking I guess you’d say. Still remember how to do it though. Especially good to see all my kayaking friends.

Moonlight paddling with or without a moon, I’m game tonight.

I arrived a bit early wanted to work out some kinks.

Practised taking some shots on myself to see if I still had some semblance of balance. Better subject would have helped. 

People began to arrive and I think we ended up with eight or nine sets of eyes.

THe sky was amazing as the sun began it’s decline and my little point and shot I believe is on it’s last legs. THe water was relatively calm, the winds were low, the night was settling in and soon it was off to Topsail Beach for a 6-7km paddle. Glowsticks on our boats we headed off.

Gerard and Derrick captured in the stillness of night, well almost still. It was neat paddling along the coast and coming up on bonfires sporadically littered along shore. The revellers must have thought it kind of cool as well seeing these glow sticks dancing just above the water as we approached their line of sight weaving and mingling as we glided past.

Thanks guys and great to see you all again.

Stan, you still are one of the best photographers of sea kayaking on the net. You images are always of high quality and set in fantastic location.
