Pete, Jim, George, Lindsay and I joined Craig for a day of white water paddling on the Cowichan. We did a new section of the river to me – From Sandy Bottom pool to Duncan. Nice water at this river level. Quite a few chum salmon seen breaking the surface. I took a good bump to the helmet in one run.

Oct 22nd - Oak bay - Made it to 1000 km! (#59)
I led a VCKC Energizer paddle from our launch at Gyro Park to lunch on Gonzalez beach and back. It was a beautiful day. We had 18 boats including a double. The currents were with us both ways and we averaged a comfortable 3 knots. I made my 1000 km for the year by lunch which felt nice. A group of us stopped off at the Smuggler’s cove pub afterwards.

October 14th - Trial Island (#58)
George and I set out early to paddle around Trial Island. Weather and conditions were great. We ran into Pete and Andy as we were returning. Coming back, I noticed a nice roche moutonee made by the glaciers during the ice ages.

October 8th - Jordan River
I joined Ken, Alphons, Bob, and Ralph at Jordan River to spend a couple of hours in the surf. Since it was my first time in a while, the conditions were great – the waves were big enough that I got rides, but not so big that it was “too exciting”. No mileage to record today, though I probably put in a couple of km…
