Today I decided to go to the town beach to start our paddle. It is close, for residents only, in the summer, no thieves and it saves a mile of paddling to get out of the cove. It was sunny, but cooler, so perfect for paddling.
Once out of the beach cove, we pass the island, wouldn't it be fun to live here.
I wanted to go down the bay today, so we headed straight for the bridge and this is what I was met with. Lots of roiling waves, try taking a photo in this and not hit a piling, lol.
The beach on the other side of the bridge is where we made landing. The perfect place to rest and enjoy the scenery. It was way too windy and rough to go any further, so we sat here for awhile and enjoyed a swim and a snack.
There was magic in the waters today, we even caught a glimpse of a mermaid.
And a special treat, her puppy came out and rested on the beach. The sun hurt his eyes, so I lent him my glasses.
On the way back, we came upon some Cormorants, who as usual didn't want use too close.
The last of the flock taking off.
And now for the giveaway. On the fourth photo, what do you think is in the water? The first right guess will win a free epattern of their choice and I will draw one name from all the entries to receive an epattern, as well. I will take guesses until 10 pm, this Wednesday night.
