July 6th - Chatham and Discovery Islands (#46)
Dan and I went for a morning paddle around the islands. Great conditions again with calm waters, sunshine and little current. On our way out we saw a fire on Chatham and eventually discovered that it was from a beach fire on the beach at Puget Cove - probably the result of a boat party last night. It had spread through the logs on the beach. There was a guy from C-Tow using a pump to put water on the fire and he blamed the fire on "irresponsible kayakers", which did not sit well with Dan or me. We continued our way around the islands and ran into Cheryl and had a good chat. We also met Mike B who is a regular visitor to the islands. On our way back across Pumper Passgae/Baynes Channel, we saw the SISKA group heading over for the campout. We made a short detour to chat with them too!
