Yes, we are kayakers. (Good eye for detail.)
In fact, my wife and I had a great time kayaking on your beautiful island in 2010 in vicinity of Tracadie Bay and the sand dunes of the north shore. Really wonderful scenery and large flocks of migrating geese, and a huge number of terns (“Arctic” and “Common,” as well as the larger “Caspsian” which we don’t see around here).
Great time with my “Windpaddle” kayak sail on a windy day. (Works well with our ruddered kayak, not so much with my skegged one.)
Two of my ancestors (Stewarts) sailed in PEI, but it was not a pleasant experience. They were aboard the barque Annabella that was ship-wrecked off Princetown. A cairn in Cabot Park at Malpeque (formerly Princetown) says: “On this shore the barque Annabella from Campbellton, Scotland was wrecked in October 1770. Her passengers, having lost all their possessions found welcome shelters in French homes. In spite of extreme hardship, these emigrants and their descendants by their faith and courage made worthy contributions to the development of a progressive community, province and country. Sixty families arrived on the Annabella and included such names as: Allanby, Carr, English, Inglis, MacKendrick, MacNeill, MacMillan, MacIntosh, MacArthur, MacDougall, MacGougan, MacKay, MacKenzie, Murphy, Montgomery, Sinclair, Stewart, Smith, Ramsay, Taylor and Woodside.”
I say the above, in part, because I note your family name in the passenger list. (If I deduce the “Murph” is short for Murphy – I may be off here...)
By the way, I have a jury-rigged deck mount for my camera for my kayaks. Out once with it so far. Here’s a video I took. (Not perfect yet, as you can see a bit of the Velcro strap on the right side of the lens.) “Sailing and kayaking – Halifax NS,” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wn3ytoD- ... ure=relmfu
(The fellow in the sailboat gave me permission to put this on utube.)
