May 3rd - Discovery Island (#46)

I paddled out to Cadboro Point to meet Dan and Paulo for a paddle around the islands. Today the sky was overcast with occasional sprinkles. The predicted 5-10 knots of wind decreased to -5 as predicted which made for easy paddling. The buffleheads have definitely all gone and there are fewer species of birds around now. https://ebird.org/canada/checklist/S87028821 It was nice to see a few marbled murrelets around.

May 2nd - Little Group - Paddle workshop (#45)

I joined 9 other SISKA paddlers for a full day workshop with Blue Dog Kayaking. This paddlers workshop was ably led by Alana and Evan who led us through many maneuvering strokes, rescues and tows. I enjoyed myself and picked up several tips on stokes, rescues and towing! We had stunning weather and light winds. Another great day on the water.
