Lots of paddling this past week

Filed under: Canada, Kayak — K2 in Canada @ 8:41 PM

We got quite a bit of paddling in these past 8 days. And the weather was more or less cooperating. Even though there were some heavy rain weekend days in the forecast we never got too wet. We hit Burnaby Lake with our K1 last Sun, Mon, Wed, Fri and this Sat. Almost like the good old days at way less intensity mind you. We hit the ocean last Saturday leaving from Deep Cove and today leaving from Jericho.  Today was an almost sunny day with a light wind coming in from the south. On the way out we were protected by the land. On the way back Jeff finally wanted to ride some waves. Only problem, the wind and waves, nothing big, were going the wrong direction. We made it halfway across English Bay towards the North Shore AWAY from the place we launched. Now we had to work our way back in some small side chop to Jericho. My balance is still not were it used to be – grrr. But I stayed dry and definitely enjoyed surfing some of the smaller waves out.

Next week is the first Deep Cove race of the season.
