Saturday afternoon, we paddled over to Newcastle with some camping gear, dropped it off, paddled around the island, paddled to the floating pub for dinner and some pitchers... then back to Newcastle for a fire and camp, great day out, first time paddling for a couple of the ladies.. some close calls!.. but all in all, a great day out!

Getting comfy in the harbour before we head out...

Few more pics to add, but this is all I was able to upload before leaving for work this morning.

The raccoons are freakin' savages over there by the way!
