June 15 - Fairy Lake - #29

I went for an afternoon paddle around Fairy Lake in my inflatable kayak to take a break from cottage maintenance! It was a bit of a blustery afternoon, but not too bad inland on the lake. I took some time to check out the Fairy Lake "bonsai" tree that has been growing on a log there for years.I had some nice views of belted kingfishers and red-winged blackbirds.

June 9th - Cadboro Bay (#28)

I ran day two of a Paddle Canada level 1 course today and we did a nice paddle around Cadboro Bay developing and practicing skills. We stopped for lunch at Cattle Point where a woman was feeding the gulls!

June 8 - Caddy Bay (#27)

I taught the first day of a Paddle Canada level 1 class for four participants in Cady Bay. The class went well and there was enough wind to make it interesting.
The GPS battery died part way through so the total distance is an estimate!

May 20-25 - Haid Gwaii (#s 22-26)

I managed to get out for 5 short paddles while leading two trips aboard maple Leaf adventures' Cascadia. The Aquaglide Chelan inflatable doubles worked remarkably well! They are maneuverable yet track reasonably well and are very stable.
