Paula had warned us earlier in the week about the algae bloom, after John checked out Mike Jackson's blog and saw Mike had been out the day before, we figured it would be ok. And although a bit of an emerald shade, we had one of those days we couldn't pass up as kayakers. Sunshine and water that was like glass. John and I launched from Caddy Bay
went to visit the Buddah
and proceeded out around the corner to see what we could see, although our frist photos were of this sailboat--beautiful!
and then we came across at least 2 families of geese
We paddled around the corner and the water was so flat that we headed to Chatham. Here John and I took a break and enjoyed the view. I noticed this goose was enjoying the view too.
John just floating and enjoying the day on the water.
John convinced me that paddling to the Chain Islands wouldn't take long and we hadn't been there yet this year. It looked far but I was up to allowing John to get in some photographs of seals which normally laze around the Chains. We heard seals, but instead we found seagulls and geese enjoying a day at the beach.
or a family picnic??
Finally we headed back as it was getting near noon and we were hoping to meet up with Paula and Bernie for coffee.
John was in the lead paddling back to Caddy Bay and as we came around he needed a little guiding. Luckily the geese know the way to Caddy's
By the time we got back to Caddy's we noticed a lot of people on the beach, sunbathers were outnumbered by kayakers.
