Farm Island

Good news! I nearly had Chuck on the water this evening. I mentioned to him at noon that I was going to paddle Farm Island again and he sounded excited to get out. Sadly, he had something come up at work and could not make it, but I think he will be paddling within a week.

You know it is windy when you come across a wind surfer:

I also explored a little bit of the finger inlets into the island, the campground, and surfed some wind generated waves.

Paddling OVER a bridge.


  1. How big of waves have you surfed? Looks fun.

  2. Nothing too terrible. No more than two or three feet. The best spot is on the Northwest corner of La Framboise Island with a SE wind at 30+ mph.
