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

2013: Post 33 – Whales in Witless Bay


The word had been going around.  There were lots of whales in Witless Bay!  So a few of us went today to see if they would not mind if we paddled with them for a while... 

Tony and I decided to put in at the river in the bottom of Witless Bay and then paddled up the north side...


... to meet our fellow paddlers who put in a little further up the shore...




We did not have to paddle long before we were in the right spot for whales...  









Between watching the whales the puffins kept me occupied...




Despite being quite foggy and not being able to really see a lot, we decided to paddle on the outside (i.e. east side) of Gull Island...



There were plenty of birds around, some with their babies... 



The tour boats were out as well...


We paddled by compass through the fog from Gull Island to the south side of the bay (I believe it was Ragged beach we took out on for a stretch and a snack)...


Then we paddled up to Breaking Point and then crossed over to Green Island...


Where there were more birds to see...



Before we left Green Island for the return trip I shot this short video...

Well, what else can I say... fog, whales, birds, tour boats, and a few kayakers all came together for a splendid morning/afternoon paddle.
