June 20th - Discovery Island (#50)

Dan and I paddled out to Cadboro Point to meet up with Paulo for a paddle around the islands. Conditions were calm with favourable currents - so much so that our moving average was 7 kph (3.8 kt) for the trip. It was a very low tide and there was lots of kelp at the surface. I love how sea kayaking allows one to work on fitness while socializing.
It was a good way to celebrate the start of summer! (the solstice was officially a couple of minutes ago! 3:34 PM Victoria time)
I am off to Haida Gwaii this Friday for a couple of weeks of being the naturalist aboard M/V Swell. I hope to get a few short paddles in like I did last year.
