On Thursday past, Tony suggested a paddle to Gallows Cove with the put-in at Indian Pond. Of the other people Tony e-mailed, only Neville and I were able to join him. Tony and I have done this paddle before (new territory for Neville) but Tony had a special reason to want to do it again.
Tony has already done his blog entry so no need for me to reiterate things... Whew! There was no way I would remember the geology stuff he explained to us today!!!. See his blog entry and you'll see what I mean.... click here.
I'll just post some pics from my perspective to add to those of Tony's...
|I was ahead and think I was the only one to get a pic of this eagle|
|The guys nearing the jetty|
|Crossing over to Chapel Cove|
|Paddling along an interesting shoreline|
Much to my dismay he switched over to his Euro paddle
since he was paddling so close to shore and amongst the rocks.
I kept telling myself it was all for the benefit of preserving his
all-cedar Greenland paddle....
|Tony ran out of water in a few places along the way...|
|Lessons in geology at Gallows Cove|
|Tony trying to get as close as he could to|
cobbles embedded into the cliff face
|More lessons in geology|
|Salmon Cove Point|
|Neville playing on the kelp covered rocks, letting the bit|
of swell push him back and forth in a little slot
I did a geology course in high school but it's all just mostly rocks to me. But Tony has a university degree in Geology, and I have to say it is very interesting to have him along to explain to us some of the geology that we see on our paddles.
Thanks Neville and Tony for the paddle today.
