St. Philips to Big Freshwater Cove

We are fortunate to be able to paddle all year in this part of the province. Yesterday our winter paddling group met at the slipway in St. Philips at around 9:30. I doubt if you will find a more enthusiast group of paddlers anywhere. The temperature was about -1 C which was quite balmy compared to the temperature a week ago. Thanks to Stan, Tony, Tobias, Dean and Gerard for a great day.

notice in the picture of me and Tobias how there is no water behind Tony - he is on the creast of the swell. Normally you would see the water all the way out of the bay behind him. The pic gives an indication of the amount of swell we had that day....
