2006.39.54 - Witty's Lagoon

A few times this summer I've mentioned how we've got "beautiful weather" or it's a "gorgeous day for paddling" yadda yadda yadda. But today really was. The sun was shining, the water calm and flat. We put in at Albert Head Park. We were going to paddle around Albert Head and into Witty's Lagoon.

With a 21 honk salute, we were off.

That's an encouraging sign.

Around the point we got into some open water with some small but gentle swells.

We arrive at Witty's Lagoon.

Unfortunately the tide is heading out and we couldn't go very far up the river...

...so we put ashore...

...and had some food.
Lunch break

There were a few herons today, but they were a little camera-shy.

After lunch, we headed back, but we went through the rocks along the shore. There were seals everywhere.

But alas, soon it was time to move on.

We head back around Albert Head.

We were only out for three hours (including lunch!), but it felt like all day. We all felt that this had been one of our best paddles ever. We explored a great new area, and had an amazing time! We will come back here!
