I Love This...but not the sleepless nights.

No one went near the water Sunday. The forecast is below. I managed to find momentary shelter deep in the bay from these cliffs in Logy Bay. Somewhere along there it peaks out at 691 feet...a place called Flagstaff Hill atop Redcliff Head(the headland off in the distance). It's a very beautiful, dramatic, yet desolate bay only a few minutes drive from downtown St. John's. A nice undertaking for a sea kayaker, as there is no real take out for a few nautical miles of the coast, in either direction. Me? parts yes(Flat Rock to Pouch Cove in '05. Then around Cape St. Francis in '06, from Pouch Cove to Bauline)...but no, not this section. Maybe in 2007. But as for these wind forecasts,"The horror! The horror!" (Conrad's Kurtz).

Environment Canada; Sunday

"Cloudy. 60 percent chance of showers in the morning and early in the afternoon. Wind southwest 60 km/h gusting to 100 except gusting to 120 along the coast in the morning and early in the afternoon. Wind becoming west 60 gusting to 100 in the afternoon. Temperature falling to plus 1 in the afternoon."

Which goes to show that some days were specifically designed not to be out kayaking, but rather to be set aside for good friends, warm fires and hot rum!
