Father's Day Paddle
What better way to spend part of Father's Day?
A good number of folks signed up for this traditional event.
The weather was cool and winds were minimal - the water level was uncharacteristically low. This was most noticeable at the falls and what is usually a torrent had declined to less than half it's usual volume. Entering some of the usual caves and arches was difficult and in most cases ill advised.
On the other hand had we been in the mood for sea urchin eggs we need only have edged our kayak and picked a few from exposed rock croppings. Huge Mussel beds were equally identified appearing from a distance as black cracks on exposed rocks.
