We set out from Maddox Cove and paddled north around Cape Spear. As we past North Head and approached Cape Spear, the swell was rebounding off the cliffs producing big, confused seas. Some of the group was getting queasy with all the bouncing around, but we continued bravely on.
Here's the view of the Cape Spear lighthouse as we paddled by.
Here's the group with our Canada Day smiles (l to r: Joy, Neil, Hazen, Gary (in back) and Ysabelle).
We got back on the water and set off for Freshwater Bay. Luckily, the seas were much calmer after passing Cape Spear.
We noticed a major improvement in water quality outside the Narrows now that the St. John's sewage treatment plant has started operation.
