Today was our first paddle of the official summer season (summer beginning on June 21st). It was the first time that Clyde used his new Greenland paddle in the ocean and the first time that I used one of my Greenland paddles that I had made last year. Unless my memory has failed me, it was the first time I have seen Gary try a Greenland paddle and it was the first time I have seen Tony decide to give a Greenland paddle a really good try. And it was the first time I have seen Gerard’s new kevlar Nordkapp LV….sweeet!

|Clyde's new Greenland paddle|
|Kelly's Island was enveloped in fog about|
about three and a half kilometres straight ahead
|Clyde and Tony|
|Although we did not paddle a long distance it was noon by|
the time we got to Martin's Cove. By the time we finished
lunch the fog had lifted.
|We climbed up to look down on Martin's Cove|
(Bell Island is in the distance).
|Getting back on the water.|
|Tony switched between the GP and his Euro during the trip|
|We had pulled up on the beach just as we rounded the|
west end of the island and climbed up for a look...
|When we came back down Clyde decided to give Gerard's new|
kayak a little spin. I think he was both impressed and envious.
|Tony talking to the sailboat owner's.|
|Gary trying Gerard's carbon fibre GP|
|GP cowboys riding their kayaks back to the beach..|
You have to admit guys, it was such a GP (great paddle)....
