Itinerary description

The water was sort of rough, but not bad. I got to Nova Scotia Island and camped out overnight (Awesome spot)!! I left in the morning and the waves were high...bad, but not scary. I got close to my destination, and the waves were small but very forceful. I went in the cove and messed around getting pics of all sorts of wildlife. I left the cove, and the waves were very strong. I pointed my bow to the island again, and the waves kept getting bigger and more powerful until I couldn't see over top of them anymore. The wave came under me, and I felt the kayak rise so far out of the water until I was on top of the wave, and then I had no place to go but down. I crested the wave, and it was like a slide going down....Over and over. I don't recommend this to anyone unless you're not afraid of huge waves and strong scary winds. Massive waves on this lake, and very scary. I'm just lucky I had a sit on top fishing kayak, or I would have definitely drowned in that water, because wave after wave kept filling my kayak. I even removed 4 of 6 scupper plugs for drainage, and even that wasn't very helpful! I don't think a splash skirt would stand up to this water at all. Be careful if you go!!
