Bye bye last year, goodbye, goodbye...
Probably the best sunset of the past year was this one. It was a beautiful calm evening up at the lighthouse in Twillingate, Newfoundland. I was with a fair bunch of people who'd come up for the view and no one felt like leaving. Only darkness finally forced us back down to the town and into its restaurants and bars.
Weather in Newfoundland seemed to be highly changeable, never leaving one hot or cold, wet or dry for long. I was told to wait a minute if I wanted the weather to change! It wasn't quite that bad, but nearly. The biggest constant seemed to be the wind and the ceaseless waves. All in all, a wonderful place, the highlight of my paddling year - and I didn't even paddle there, but I will!
