Dan and I went for a morning paddle out to the islands. It was a bit windy with 10-15 kt SE winds which made for some nicely lumpy water of Cadboro and seabird points as well as a bit of interesting clapotis off the east side of Discovery. We saw California Sea lions off Seabird point - they seem to have been hanging around there recently. No sign of the wolf today, though we did not search for him. You can see that the wind affected our progress, slowing us down on the outward journey and speeding us up for the return - in spit of a reasonable ebb current! We found, collected and disposed of some old helium birthday balloons.
