2009 flew by and here I am in Oak bay again bobbing around with Paula in upset seas. Following some fantastic, clear weather over the holidays, the Grey is back with Southeasterlies to boot. I met Paula at the beach in good spirits and ready to paddle her Eliza.


We launched at Cadboro Bay into a light SE wind and paddled along the southern shore of the bay to Cattle Point. A small bit of swell was coming into oak bay and a light rain started up. A couple of seals watched us from the rocks and we kept close to Willows beach to keep out of unnecessary swell. We met a bigger group of kayakers near the Oak Bay Marina breakwater who were heading out to the chains. I didn't have too much time this morning, so Paula and I rounded Mary Todd Island and headed back home along the same path. Greeting us on the way in was a huge group of oystercatchers all huddled together. We pulled up the beach, packed up and got a quick coffee to conclude 2009's paddling activity.
