Picnic lunch and early-season ocean kayaking.

Lining along a shore lead - good for variety even if the water doesn't get us very far.     

Finally, some 'open' ocean.

"Extreme" lining as we move out through a tidal narrows to a wider fiord.

Nice reflections in meltwater pools on the sea ice as we pretend to be sled-haulers.

Serene morning paddling.
