I managed to get one short paddle in during my 2 week stint in Gwaii Haanas aboard S/V Maple Leaf - too many other fun things to do! On my last morning, I managed to get out for a quick paddle by myself and then another short one with a passenger. It is wonderful to explore the shore by kayak. One of the many creatures I saw was one that has a very fine name: leafy hornmouth! (it is a snail that preys upon barnacles).
