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!
