August 6 - Cape Tormentine to The Confederation Bridge and the Cape Jourimain
12 people turned out for this 11.6 km paddle. Well, it didn't rain, but there was a 20kph wind blowing in our faces for the return trip. The fact that most people battled the current didn't help either.
August 13 - Five Islands, NS
A beautiful sunny day, if a tad windy.
We had 13 out for this paddle, and with the exception of the put-in/take-out, it was a great paddle.
There's 37 pictures here.
Aug 19/20 - Campobello Island
Wish I could have gone, here's a couple of trip reports from those that did.
"We went out 4 times and covered some different areas. I wish you had been there Sat morning because the fog was in and out. It was so beautiful I could have cried! We have to go again next year. We also found an area with cottages that hold six people and there is a grassy slope to the beach. "
"They paddled up close and personal with a very large basking shark."
Here's a link to the location of some taken on the 19/20 by Dianne Cyr.
August 24 - Shediac Bridge
We had 9 turn out for this 10k paddle. We had initially planned on paddling around Shediac Island, but the winds dictated otherwise, so we paddled along the west-coast of the Bay until we could get the wind and waves behind us for the return trip.
August 27 - Kouchibouguac Grey Seal Adventure
We had 22 paddlers show up for this almost 15k round-trip paddle out the Kouchibouguacis River to the dunes and seals. While there may be thousands of seals out there somewhere, we had less than 50.
