Breakin' through the ice

Yesterday was the kind of day to be outdoors. Although the temperature was minus ten degrees celsius very early in the morning, it was sunny with blue skies. While many people were no doubt heading to the ski slopes or to the back country on their snowmobiles, six of us travelled to beautiful Cape Broyle for a paddle. After breaking our way through the ice, we paddled along the north shore for about ten kms and had lunch at Coughlan's Cove near Brigus South. After lunch, we crossed the mouth of the harbour and headed for Church Cove, a distance of just over 2 1/2 km. By the time we got back to our starting point, we had paddled about 24 km. A great day and a great place to live!
