February 2nd - Discovery Island (4)

I paddled out to Cadboro Point to join Paulo and Dan. It was as cold as I have been paddling in a while! There was snow on Cadboro Point as well as on Strongtide, Vantreight and West Chatham Islands! Conditions were not bad with 10-15 kt of wind and a bit of an ebb current. This made for some lumpy water in Baynes Channel and around Seabird Point.

Birding was good with 21 species seen:

February 1st - Cadboro bay (#3)

I went for a solo paddle around the bay to enjoy the nice winter weather. Had a chat with Curran and kids on shore and saw a few different birds.

The tide was fairly high allowing me to sneak through several gaps.
