July 8th - Darcy Island (#32)

David, Marie, Sandy, Malcom, Melissa and I set out from Island View Beach to paddle around Darcy. There was a bit of a breeze from the south, but not too much so we had a great day’s paddle. The breeze was behind us on the way back which made for a quick ride (some surfing) and a chance to use my sail. The winds were ranging from 5– 10 knots mostly with gusts to 15. (see the kelp reef reports below).

The wildlife sighting of note was a brown pelican – the first time I have seen one up here!
