....You flashed that crossing.

We started from Shelter Bay at 7AM and arrived at the Bear Cove boat ramp at about 2:30PM. I know that we lost a ton of time by starting too early and having to compensate for a 3 knot ebb. We also got out of our boats in the Deserters but the slimy boulders that we ate lunch on weren't comfy and I don't recall hanging around. We also got out on a rock ledge and stood in thigh deep water at the south end of Bell Island while regaling a couple of paddlers heading north with our adventures and loading campsites into their GPS.
Still, the difference between our times is vast and you were clearly more efficient. I'm thinking that Dave and I are slugs and would never be able to maintain your pace.

Nicely done!
