On Saturday morning we put in at Fairhaven and followed the shore down to Big Seal Cove where we camped for the night...

|It was a cool morning and as the sun gained strength|
the rocks began to look like they were on fire

We woke to a lovely morning in Big Seal Cove. After breaking fast and then breaking camp and paddled back up the shore to Trinny Cove by way of Iona and Brine islands...

|It was a chilly night but there was|
lots of beach wood to fuel the fire
|When we were ready to call it a night we spread the coals|
of the fire across the beach and Brian dumped a
few buckets of water over them for good measure
The morning was chillier than the last couple days. We had our breakfast and packed up for the short paddle back to the cars...

We covered just fifty-four kilometers over the three days. The weather was unexpectedly pleasant for the middle of May and we knew we were lucky in that regards. We had fairly easy paddling, some good meals, a lot of laughs, a few drinks, and a couple decent campfires.
It was a great start to this years kayak camping trips.
