Gerry and I headed up to Maine last weekend to scout out the locations for the Schoodic Sea Kayak Retreat.
It was Gerry's first time in the area. He and his wife are now looking into buying a place up there. There are loads of great paddling venues suitable to all skill levels of kayakers.
Over Labor Day weekend I attended the second annual New England Intermediate Rough Water Symposium hosted by Tom Bergh of Maine Island Kayak Company.
Tropical storm Noel swept by New England in late October and sent some fun waves towards Napatree Point. I didn't get much good footage while paddling, but the resulting video is still fun.
After teaching my class at the WoodenBoat School, I got a chance to head up to Blue Hill for some play time. There is a reversing falls that has a nice play wave popular with the whitewater crowd.
ConnYak the local paddling club is having their annual slide show tonight, so I put together a couple videos from last summer's paddling.
I've been playing around with taking video using a Pentax Optio W10 that I have strapped to a helmet. The quality of the video is not great, but the results are kind of fun.
Carl and I were the only ones to show up. I guess other people looked at the weather and thought better of it. It wasn't particularly cold, but it wasn't exactly warm. They were talking snow, but the clouds were cracked, showing a little blue and the occasional glimpse of the sun.
