Well, another Thursday evening "practice" in St. Philip's has come and gone. The day started with a brisk NW wind that had whitecaps forming on the bay. It was beginning to look like a good evening on the bay. But, as is often the case lately, the wind dropped off completely by the time we hit the water. There were, however, long rolling swells producing some good clapotis in areas so we took advantage of that. For some reason, there was not a "whole lotta practicing goin' on" tonight. We bobbed, we chatted, we rolled and we scooted in and out of the swells.
Thanks to Brian, Tony, Clyde and Hazen. Hazen, by the way, was sporting his brand spankin' new drysuit and this was his first salt water paddle since September! Now that he has his drysuit, there's no stopping him now!!
Was tonight a write-off? By no means at all. Look at the picture above and you'll see why? A beautiful evening on the water, good friends and an obvious love of paddling. 'Nuff said!!
