Today Darren from Westcoast Paddler and I set out from Cadboro Bay at around 11 AM and headed out around Chatham and Discovery Islands. It was a very nice glassy calm day - what a contrast from yesterday! Cadboro Bay was filled with floating logs - the wind and high tides of yesterday must have freed a bunch from the beaches.
We paddled 9.0 Miles (16.6 Km) and had a great time poking into various bays. Darren showed me a spot where the prickly pear cacti are growing on an islet.
Here is a visualization of our track using gpsvisualizer.com
Some shots from today’s trip:
Darren and his new camera!, Stonecrop and Cactus, setting out through the logs, a pair of Harlequin ducks.
Well, I also had to play a bit with today’s track and GoogleEarth. I used Ozi2GoogleEarth and the result looks great - I wish I could combine the colour coding and “tick marks” of gpsvisualizer with the GE image quality for the ultimate kayak track logs...
Overall, though I will stick with GPS visualizer since I like the colour coding and tick marks.
