Sunday Paddle!

Today was a bit warmer, but windy, so we got a late start on our plans. We decided to go to the town launch which is close to home and just paddle in the cove. We know how well that works for me, lol. It took me five minutes to say, heck with it, lets go out on the bay.

It was windy, but not too wavy and the paddle was easy since the wind was at our back. There were a lot of boats out today and we got to see a tug pushing a barge, out to the ocean.

We paddled down to the town beach. There was a festival going on, mini boat races and live music, so we sat and watched and enjoyed some music from the boats.

Of course I had to keep going and we started paddling down the coast, but I decided to give up at the last point. It was way too easy to paddle, we were flying in the waves with the wind pushing us and that meant, fighting it, coming back.

It took twice as long coming back, but it was a nice paddle in the waves and I just rested during the heavy gusts. The lighthouse means we are back to the breakers, wouldn't this be a fun place to live. 

It was still high tide, so I paddled close to the breakers, till we found a place in the rocks to slip through, a short cut which didn't please these guys too much, they all flew away. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
