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

2012: Post 37 - St. Philips to Brock Falls

Cool temperature and a promise of low winds.  Neville, Tony and I met at St. Philips this morning.  No real plan was in place other than to see once we got there... Once we got on the water we decided we would head to Portugal Cove.  

At St. Philips the water was  flowing up the concrete
slipway.  At times it came to where Neville is standing,
where Tony had initially parked his car.
 There was lots of swell to keep us interested between St. Philips and Portugal Cove...

When we got to Portugal Cove we decided we would continue up to Brocks Pond Falls...

Neville... his bow pointing
approximately to where the falls are.


The falls were flowing nicely... it's always a treat to paddle here, especially when it gets colder and the falls are ice-covered... like when we paddled here in March...

We hung around the falls for a little while and then headed back to St. Philips...


Another fine paddle finished.

Thanks guys for another memorable day on the water.  Won't be too many more paddle days before this year is over...


  1. Excellent paddle today. Three more and I will be content for the year.

    I had no idea what was going on behind me in that 2nd last shot. Good thing too!

    Tony :-)

  2. yeah, if you knew you probably would not have went through, and I would not have got the pic
