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

2014: Post 8 – Now this is spring paddling...

This morning seven of us meet to do a one-way paddle from Conception to Colliers...  A few of us did part of this paddle (up to Collier's Point) back in early December... see 2013: Post 57 - Avondale.  Unlike the day in December, the waters today were calm which allowed us to get into the nooks along the shoreline.

Anyway, here are some pics...

Getting ready at the slipway in Conception

Hazen was the first to get on the water

When water falls off the cliffs
you just gotta rinse off the bow...

Tony took the crew on a little
'geological walk' at Bacon Cove

Just around Collier's Point there is
a nice little spot for a lunch take-out





At the take-out in Colliers we had to walk our
kayaks a little way due to the shallow water 

A local dog quickly befriended us (I think
mostly because Derrick gave her treats)

The kayaks had to be carried a  little way
to the cars due to the low tide

The pics pretty much show the kind of day we had.  What else is there to say other than thanks to Brian, Sue, Derrick, Hazen, Neville, and Tony for another great paddle.


  1. Hard to believe that it was 4 months ago when we here here last. Vastly different conditions at Colliers Point then with no chance to take out.

  2. I know, we did part of the same shoreline but conditions were very different back in December... I can still remember when you were in just a little too close at one spot on the way back...
