I went for a solo paddle around the top end of Horne Lake while Monica and I were camping there. There were quite a few fishermen out by the river mouth but not many fish being hooked! It was nice to do a freshwater paddle for a change. We also went for a nice hike in the area
I joined a SISKA paddle led by Edgar H. Edgar, six others and I went out and around the islands in excellent conditions. We had a chance to play in the current between Vantreight and East Chatham island and I ran into Alan and Linda in their canoes as well as Dennis and Sue who were exploring by dinghy from their sailboat. We had a nice lunch in Rudlin bay.

I led a SISKA paddle in Sooke Basin. 17 paddlers and I explored the shoreline of the basin, seeing mergansers, buffleheads, kingfishers, otters and seals. The weather was sunny though we had to break our way through ice in Cooper's Cove! There was a bit of a northeasterly breeze which created some chop, but we managed to avoid most of this by sticking close to the shore. Many of us stopped for a coffee or beer at the Stickleback eatery afterwards!
