February 8th - Courtenay River (#10)

While four of us were staying at Courtenay River Cottage again, Bill and I took the two Tahes for a morning paddle in the Courtenay River. There was ice all around, the water was cold, but the air was not bad! We broke some ice here and there in the river backwaters and saw lots of small jellyfish in the river estuary. The cottage is handy since it backs onto the river.In the afternoon we went for a snowy hike up on the logging roads near Mt Washington. The next day we went snowshoeing in the same area and then today Monmioca and I went cross-country skiing at Mt Washington nordic - both sunshine and heavy snowfall in a short time period! A great weekend!

Hey, that's right beside my Grandma's condo. I'll be there in a couple of months - planning to come out to the island for the Pacific Paddling Symposium then will head up to Courtenay for a visit.
