Are you kidding me?

As I looked out my back window Wednesday morning with the falling snow coming to and end, I wondered about our evening practice in St. Philips.  We had 13 cms of snow on the ground and in fact had more snow in April than we had all winter.

Luckily the sun came out around noon and the air warmed to 8C.  It looked like the evening practice would be on anyway.

When we arrived at St. Philips there was no evidence of snow on the ground.  There's usually less snow at sea level anyway but if there was any it had melted during the day.

Maybe the earlier weather affected the turnout; there were only five of us.  It was calm so we just went for a paddle to Portugal Cove mostly doing a bit of rock hopping.

At 8:00 the sun sank behind Bell Island and we were back at St. Philips.

We had a lovely evening but I am left to ask, when will spring arrive?

P. S.

Subsequent to posting these few pix, Shane who had a camera going on his RG, uploaded a video of some of the action.  Some nice action and great music to accompany.  Here's the link.


  1. Looks lovely... beautiful sunset.
    Nice RG Shane! Roll it yet? :)
    Hopefully spring won't be retroactive and we will just dive right into summer on time!

  2. Yes, Shane rolled his RG. You were missed!
