Top paddles of 2013 - #4

On June 8th a group of us paddled from Middle Cove to Quidi Vidi,  Its a paddle along an exposed coast that I've wanted to do for some time.  I was pleased to finally got around to doing it.  Here we're leaving Middle Cove but not before ...

... checking out some of the caves at the foot of the 200 foot high cliffs.

We paddled over to Outer Cove, up to and around Torbay Point before turning south with the steeply dipping sedimentary beds to starboard.  This coast is entirely exposed to the North Atlantic.  To port lay Ireland well over the horizon.

Along the way we stopped to explore some gigantic caves.

All the way south the hills kept us company.

At Logy Bay we took out for lunch.  It was a tangly take-out but we got all boats out of the water and had lunch on the raised rocks.

At the end of the trip we were in Quidi Vidi and went back to Middle Cove to retrieve the cars left there.

I've wanted to do this paddle for a while and it was all I expected it would be.  Therefore, its on my list of top paddles.  Here's a link to the original post and here too.
