2013: Post 55 – Paddling to a rainbow

The forecast was good for a morning paddle today.... So Julie and I paddled from St. Philips to Portugal Cove.

Julie bought a new kayak earlier this year, a kevlar NDK Pilgrim, and Tony dubbed it the "Purple Pilgrim."  The kayak fits her much better than her previous one and we've noticed her skills and comfort level have been elevated since she got it... Just goes to show the importance of having a kayak well-fitted to it's paddler....

Anyway, here's some pics...

There was a rainbow with one end near Portugal Cove...

... and the other end at Bell Island.

The water was calm allowing easy passage at Sailing Point

Back at St. Philips

I don't mind doing a solo paddle now and then, but I much prefer to have a paddling partner or two or three... Thanks for the company today, Julie.  It was a very enjoyable morning on the water.
