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

2012: Post 21 – Sunday paddle

A couple weekends ago we did a two night camping trip at Irelands Eye.  Wouldn't you know it, I forgot my camera.  So here is a link to Tobias' blog entry on the trip:  Tobias' Blog.  And one to Clyde's pics:  Clyde's Blog.

Sunday past, four of us paddled out of Middle Cove.  We crossed Outer Cove and headed for Torbay Point, then paddled back into Outer Cover, and decided to head over to Motion.  Enroute we got close to some whales, but no one was able to get a picture.  They just surfaced near us and submerged just as quick.  Unless you leave your camera on, or they decide to be curious and hang around while you turn on your camera, it's sometimes harder than one would think to get a picture of these big creatures...

Anyway, I took a bunch of pictures but a lot of them were out of focus.  Here are a few to share...

Clyde happened to be walking along the trail overlooking Middle Cove when we were paddling there and snapped this shot...

Thanks for letting me use the pic, Clyde.  Too bad you weren't on the water with us...
