Prince’s Inlet to Covey Island

25 05 2009

On Saturday we decide to try another little paddle on a different local bay, Prince’s Inlet. It was a beautiful sunny day, as we unloaded the kayak and set off.

We have  seen these houses from the back (roadside) but it was nice to pass right along below their front gardens.

House 1

I particularly like this natural wooden house with its lovely garden and Scot’s Pine trees. It seems to fit into its setting very well.

And how would you like to come and stay at the guest house of the house on the right?

Again the location is everything.

House 4

Many houses have their own dock.House 5 with dockWe paddled past the Lunenburg Yacht Club on Herman’s Island. As you can see it is not quite the season here yet, most people waiting till mid June to put their boats into the water.

But we did pass one lone yacht further out in the bay.Lone yacht 3

July/August, these waters will be full of yachts and power boats. It was nice to have the water to ourselves this week-end.
