Rest Day - Day Three - Paddle #50

After the day two paddle to Nanaimo we decided to take a day off and hike in to see Dodd Narrows at its full ebb on Sunday morning. Along the way we did a little Geocaching but once we reached the narrows viewpoint we hung around and watched the blingy yachts and other boats battle the currents. The first yacht that came through almost lost its dingy and then we watched a little tug "grunt" its way through the narrows. Pretty cool! 

We then headed to Cedar On The Sea to find the put in location for making a trip over to De Courcy Groups of islands on Monday. The boat launch was extremely busy with small powered pleasure craft and kayakers coming and going. We figured it probably wouldn't be a busy on Monday but we'll have to wait and see.

Heading back to base camp I whipped up a batch of sushi then we suited up for an evening paddle in the river as the tide was coming in. Yeah we know ... it was supposed to be a rest day but what the heck we thought it would be best to get paddle #50 out of the way. Anyway it was a great opportunity to try a few rolls (that didn't work) and then I tried my hand at kayak paddle boarding. That didn't work either!  LOL

Tomorrow we head to Pirate's Cove.
