Release Date 7/30/2020

I paddled off of PEI with Ourside Expeditions in North Rustico.

It was threatening to rain, but I finished before it started, and it was nice to not paddle in direct sun. 

I went from North Rustico Harbor to Robinson's Island, that is not really an island. It looked like it was all wilderness, but as I got closer I realized it has a bike trail in it, and there were a bunch of people on the Beach as I went further along, presumably to where you can drive to. This does seem like a cool place to come back to for biking. 

They give me a pretty good kayak and paddle! Its a Tempest from WS.

I had a short break for water and a snack on the Island then continued on. It was about 2 hours of paddling over about 2 1/2 hours. The coastline was too boring and I was worried about getting caught out in the rain to go any longer. 

The previous paddle along the cliffs was a lot more fun, and I will do that next time. 

You can see the paddle in detail on Strava:

My total Strava for all activities, most not paddling, is here:

Truth: Its best to call first.
