August 17th - Discovery island (#57)

I managed to get out for a late afternoon paddle with Fraser. We had great conditions with minimal wind and current. We saw some of the usual suspects ( https://ebird.org/canada/checklist/S93391139). It was neat to see so many belted kingfishers. I also ran into Ben who was paddling out in the islands and saw Ryan and Eric on the way back by Flower Island.

August 6th - Geirþjófsfjörður (#56)

While working on the Lindblad National Geographic Explorer, I managed to get out for a paddle with a guest in Geirþjófsfjörður in the West Fjords near Dynjandi waterfall. Nice calm afternoon and we saw well over 100 Eurasian oystercatchers. My only paddle out of the country so far this year!
