What's in a blog?

On a sunny day near Flatrock

Sometimes I ask myself, why do I blog? The main reason I've reasoned is to share pictures of the paddles I'm on with the others in the party. Another reason is to remember sunny days like Ysabelle, Neil, Stan and I had on days like today after 8 or 9 days of rain or wet snow. But one I hadn't thought about before, I realized when I looked at where people who visit my blog are from.

I noticed there are visits from non-coastal areas and I realized that I'm able to share pictures of an environment they don't usually paddle in. When you live in the middle of continental America or anywhere away from the sea you paddle where you can, on lakes, rivers, whatever. Anything to get that paddling fix.

So, I find it satisfying to be able to share shots of my environment with people who don't have access to it. And I think how awesome it would be for someone to decide to come to paddle in Newfoundland and come paddle with us.


  1. I'm really glad you share your pics......and I'd love to come paddle with all of you.
