So often living here on the island we forget to stop and take the time to really enjoy all the benefits of living in paradise. Well the other week through a series of events I was 'forced' to take a paddle from the dock of the Dinghy Dock pub back down the Newcastle Channel. As I paddled (and towed!) the rental kayaks back I hugged the shoreline of Newcastle Island. I had a great little converstation with two raccoons digging in the sand. The waters of the channel were calm and the a brillant green. Passing boaters waved, and float planes passed overhead. Here I was right in front of the second largest city on the island I truly felt a million miles away.
There is really only one kayak rental outlet in town, they offer great tours of all levels too. So you can enjoy a slice of paradise too.
