The forecast for today was calling for light winds. Time to pick up the paddle again.
The last time I was on the water with Tobias was Oct 14. I do not think he had paddled since then. Tony had not paddled for a while either... he nearly cut off his thumb a short while ago!! So Tobias, Tony, and I met at Bay Bulls this morning for a little run out to South Head.
Some pictures to share...
|Put-in at the slipway on a beautiful Sunday morning.|
|Before long we could feel the effects of some swell coming into the bay|
|Tobias, happy to be on the water.|
|The swell a little further out...|
|... crashed over the rocks.|
|Usually we paddle inside these rocks. But today we|
had to be content to stay outside. We also were not able
to safely enter the caves in the area today.

|Although we were only a couple kilometers from the take-out, |
we pulled up on a little beach to have a snack on the way back.
|All hands, and one with a throbbing thumb,|
made it back to the slipway.
Tony has some pics of the day on his blog entry as well...
