August 11th - Discovery Island (#25)

Dan and I went for a morning paddle around the islands. First "real" paddle since I got back from Iceland! Weather conditions were great and the tide was super low (zero tide height!) and many of our usual passages were blocked (We could not go between Griffin and Alpha Islets)! There was also a strong ebb current as we set out across Baynes which made for some squirelly and lumpy water and a pretty fast pace! You can see the grey section in the channel showing when I was over 10 kph! We saw some nice birds including black turnstones and a couple of common murres.

August 9th - RVYC (#24)

I went for a short evening SUP over to the RVYC. the tide was super high so I had to lie down on the board to go under the bridge! Nice conditions! I have been away a lot this year... I probably won't make my 50/500 goal!
