Canada Day at Pedder Bay

WOW!! 6 weeks since the last time we were on the water. I guess after 5 years of paddling almost every other weekend I think we deserved a bit of an unplanned break. During the down time we have done a little RV'ing, spent a weekend in Vancouver and done a fair bit of hiking while combining geocaching and bird photography / watching which has become a passion of ours.

This weekend we are back at Pedder Bay RV Resort for a 4 day super long weekend and although we have been experiencing high winds of +35 kts since Friday night we did manage to paddle on July 1st Canada Day. Our original plan was to simply get on the water and play for about 30 minutes but after putting in some really good rolls we took advantage of the early calm conditions and headed out towards Bentinck Island.

It felt great to be back on the water blending strokes while interacting with nature and identifying the creatures above and below the surface. Sometimes taking a break from something your love to do helps re-energize the soul. Yup ... we're back!!
