I helped Tom lead a SISKA energizer paddle out to the islands. We had a good sized group (almost 30?) indicating that lots of us wanted to get our year's paddling going again. I was the "pacesetter" for most of the trip and took the group on a side trip into Puget Cove and to "cactus islet". We had lunch at Rudlin Bay and finished with coffee at Olive Olios in Cadboro bay Village. Weather was calm and the currents though stronger at the start did not cause us much problem. It was great to paddle with many old friends and make several new ones!
