We hand-railed the shore, stopping in Freshwater Bay where a salmon jumped for us near the little river emptying out of Freshwater Bay Pond. We contined along the shore and took out in Deadman's Bay for an early lunch.... Then back in the boats, crossing Blackhead Bay and Cape Bay to Cape Spear.
While mulling around at the Cape, Des, Linda, and Gerard showed up. They had put in at Petty Harbour and were doing a one-way paddle to Quidi Vidi.
From the Cape we made a bee-line back to the entrance of Quidi Vidi.

|Lunch in Deadman's Bay...|
"C'mon Hazen, were ready to go!"
|"Clyde, how you gonna get that new FG kayak of yours off this beach"?|
"Well Hazen, I'm gonna wait to see how Tony does it...."
|"Do it like this Clyde...."|
|"No, I'm just gonna seal launch... no point wasting a perfectly good keel strip!!"|
And at the Cape....

It was a great day with sunshine and enough wind to make it a fun day on the water. Thanks guys for another great paddle.
