the week that was

This week was characterised by strong easterly, [off shore] winds. For us kayakers this means the danger of being swept out to sea is a reality and so we tend to stick close to the shore. Rock hopping in these conditions is a lot of fun but because the reef is very shallow it is easy to get stuck on the rocks or at least to get a new scratch or two on the bottom of your boat. I find myself breathing in and trying to lift myself up when rocks attack me.
The weather is changing, mornings are colder and the water temp is dropping, nothing like our friends in the USA, so I guess we shouldn`t complain.
Tomorrow after the morning paddle I am holding another Greenland paddle carving day, if you are in the neighbourhood you are welcome to pop in for a visit.
