Little Egg Harbor, NJ
April 15, 2006
Temperatures in the low 60s and bright skys made for a pleasant day. Winds of 10-15 knots were no problem during the outward leg of the trip, when we were paddling into them. They made for a more difficult return, when we opted to paddle directly across open water. The wind and the following seas made for swifter travel, but commanded more effort and attention. These photos were taken during the calm parts of the trip.

Sometimes what seems like solid ground isn't. I'm wearing a shorty wet suit, but it sure doesn't look like it! I just crawled out from hip deep black mud.
