Just For Fun tour, stage 3

Today we did a loop in the Mahone Bay, Blue Rocks and Lunenburg area with a stop for a snack at Sweet Indulgence in Lunenburg. The turnout was good - ten people. But I would label it 'great' because there was  a wide range of people represented. Two strong cyclists who joined us for the first time and there were people who have been stalwarts this summer and even someone who has been mostly absent since our Cabot Trail trip in 2012. 

My favorite part of the trip was the trip out to Blue Rocks. We rode through Stonehurst which is more protected than Blue Rocks proper. It is a great place to sea kayak because there are lots and lots of narrow passages. Once you are into the labyrinth you feel like you have entered a magic world. It was neat to see the water from the land for a change.



Corkum's Island

As we stood at the end of the road I discovered that several of the newest to our group are also avid sea kayakers and live within a short paddle of our house. So we have already planned a full moon paddle to an island in the Bay sometime next summer. Let the fun continue.
