If you just go for a paddle than you can stop thinking about wanting to go for a paddle.

2011: Post 37 – Flatrock to Outer Cove

Yesterday afternoon a small group of us left Flatrock.  Our plan was to follow the shore and paddle as far as Outer Cove.  There are a lot of caves in the area and when the conditions are right you can check out every one of then, and the conditions were right for our afternoon paddle.

I like how this pic is divided by light and dark...

Tony let this young boy sit in his kayak...
of course his sister had to have a turn too.

I did not know I took this pic until I reviewed my shots at home,
but it is kind of interesting though...

There was some increased swell on our way back...

The days paddle done.

This was an excellent paddle.  It is so close to home and provides hours of relaxed paddling and many caves to check out.  But you have to mind the weather and sea state.  You have to pick your day to be able to check out those caves and Neil picked a perfect day for it.  Thanks Neil and Ysabelle for the invitation to go on this paddle.
