St. Philip's Weekend

I had some work to do on Saturday and finished up around 2:00p.m. when I was done it was 10 degrees and sunny so I decided the day was too nice to waste at home.  I sent out and email letting people know I was going to be at St. Philip's at 3:30 if anyone wanted to join me.  Terry replied saying he was already out and over to Bell Island and that he would be there to meet up with me.  I loaded my gear and took off to St. Philip's where Terry was waiting for me then we headed out.

We made our way towards Topsail Beach playing along the shoreline.

We got to Topsail Beach and spent some time playing around where the pond runs into the ocean.

There were a few people that came down and took some pictures of me and Terry taking turns running through the current and getting carried up in the beach by the waves.  We stopped for a quick snack then headed on back to St. Philip's.

Few pics of Terry on the way back
That's it for Saturday.  We had an awesome day taking out time and playing around along the way.  We got back to St. Philip's, washed off in the fresh water and headed home.  Awesome day!  Way too nice to stay home.

An email was sent out Saturday suggesting a trip from Long Pond to Kelly's Island to Little Bell Island and back again.  That didn't really appeal to me and Brian said he was going to skip that one and take his Hammer to St. Philip's instead so I decided I would take my RG and join Brian.
When I got there it was Brian, Sue, Dave and myself.

Here is Brian, Dave, then Sue leading the way.

Dave and Sue had their Sea Kayaks so they carried on ahead while me and Brian took our time and played around in our boats.
I didn't get a lot of pictures today partly because I forgot about my camera towards the second half and partly because I was busy having fun and testing out my new RG.
We got as far as Beachy Cove and me and Brian spent some time playing around where there is a little brook that runs into the ocean.  The swell was pretty big so we had a lot of fun here riding the waves in and then letting the brook push us back out.  We kept playing here until Sue and Dave started to head back then me and Brian took our time and followed.  Two beautiful days of paddling with lots of fun playing around the rocks and streams.  This was my first time taking my RG for a good paddle and for what we were doing today, I love it!

Terry, Brian, Sue, and Dave...
Thanks for the awesome weekend!
