The ground and trees were snow covered and there was some sunshine as Tony and I started out from St. Philips. The temperature was just below 0 deg C and there was not too much wind in our face going to Topsail Beach. Along the way there was some swell and icicles clinging to the cliffs.
There was wind behind us coming back to St. Philips so there were some little surf rides along the way. We seen an eagle and the snow fell in big flakes for most of the trip back. And of course there was coffee afterwards.
Some pics to share....
It could only have been better if there was a whale and some seals, and a few more paddlers to share the day. It was just a great way to start the new year.
