We put-in at Bellevue Beach where the surf was dumping making getting on the water an interesting, but fun experience.
Then we paddled to a little cove just before the community of Chance Cove where we got on the beach for lunch. The caplin were rolling and and it was easy to get a meal of them if you were so inclined; some were inclined, the rest of us watched... or took pictures of the inclined.
After lunch we paddled on to Chance Cove and took a little on-water break before heading back to Bellevue Beach for a surf landing.
Here are some of the pictures I took of the day...

I think all hands would agree it was a fantastic day to be on the water. We seen a lot of eagles, a couple whales, caplin rolling on the beach, some swell, some surf, and a little bit of wind, and a whole lot of fun...
Big thanks to Paul Benson and Tony Lee for the great day.
