Sarah and I led a group of 7 grade 9 students on a 3 night, four day, camping trip in the gulf islands. We camped on Portland Island, Rum Island and D'Arcy Island, and landed on Moresby and Sidney Islands as well. We had spectacular conditions until the last morning when it was a bit windy and wavy... no capsizes!
I went for an afternoon paddle around the bay via the yacht club, Jemmy Jones, Cadboro Point, Flower Island and back into the Bay. The weather was gorgeous and I could see all the way down to Mt. Rainer. I ran into a SISKA group taking a class with Jennie and Elizabeth. Not too many birds around... a few pigeon guillemots, a couple of rhinoceros auklets, some Canada geese and a couple of black oystercatchers.
