Kayaking around town

A great way to end the Canadian Physiotherapy Association congress was to head out of the city and hit the water. The weather called for gusts of 50 km but we were well protected within Bay Bulls. The sea stack commonly referred to as the Pulpit is a great rock feature seen from the East Coast trail. But you gain a whole different perspective from the water.
It is typically hard to negotiate going around the Pulpit this time of year due to wind and swell but one double safely managed.
There have been no whales inside the bays yet but one of the tours spotted a fin whale among 7 humpbacks. And there seems to be a lot of whales a fair distance from shore but within reach of the tour boats.
