Ho, Ho, Ho, jingle all the way

Since 2009 (with one year missed due to weather) a few of us have met at St. Philips for a Christmas paddle or bounce depending on the sea state.  2016 was no exception.

Of course Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer was there.

There was a dusting of snow on the trees and a fine skim of ice on the water in the harbour.

There was a surprising amount of chop as we made our way north ...

... but not enough to keep us from making passages through the rocks.

Here the passage was well protected.

At Beachy Cove we stopped to float around a bit before ...

... carrying on the last short distance to Portugal Cove.

Almost there.

And we arrive to ...

... raft up.  Poor Rudolph's antlers started the paddle standing proud but the water took its toll making them droop.

It was a great way to lead into the Christmas season earning a few calorie credits before the feasting began.
