Off to the South Coast

Air photo of Grand Bruit area

Tomorrow Stan, Ralph and I are off to Burgeo on the South Coast of the island to do a multi-day paddle between Rose Blanche and Burgeo. We'll take the last provincial ferry run to Grand Bruit and on to Rose Blanche to begin our paddle back.

Its a very exposed coast. Due south are the Bahama Islands, Cuba and the rest of the Carribean islands. I checked out the air photos at the Government Lands Division and noted there are very few and far between takes outs. Once launched, we're committed.

Our greatest asset will be judgement. Hopefully the weather will cooperate.

I expect to be back around July 5.

  3. You are going back to my homeland, the southwest coast. I've only done that stretch of coast in speedboat, but never in a kayak. I hope to someday.

  4. Hope you can get a spot on the Boat. Grand Bruit is shutting down and everyone is moving their stuff out. Good Luck.

  5. Thanks guys. A last couple of days were hectic packing and making sure I have everything I need but now it looks to be under control. Test loaded the boat today and it sure feels heavy.

    We won't be taking chances. All agree or its a no go on any given day.

    Tony :-)

  6. Tony,

    Enjoy the trip and be safe. Good to hear that you have already made the decision on the "no go" issue.
