2011: Post 23 – Bellevue Beach to Chance Cove

Today was a KNL (Kayak Newfoundland and Labrador) club paddle, organized and lead by Tony Lee and Paul Benson.  There were nineteen participants who showed up for what turned out to be an sunny, warm, fun day on the water. 

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...

Alex waited for just the right wave to come ashore...

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.
