Review of Nothing Predictable: Kayaking Newfoundland

Really great audio quality, sound rich hearing the paddles through the water. Good descriptions of the area.
Sort of an expanded one minute vacation.

Review of Nothing Predictable: Kayaking Newfoundland

A man, his kayak and huge icebergs. Rob Rosenthal takes us out on the water with him in Newfoundland. He provides the sounds - and describes the sights. I wanted to hear more about the water and how his kayak handled in it.
He shares his experience - crunches and all - of tasting a "cube" off an iceberg.
I hope Rob files other kayaking reports where his adventures take him.
