Default Kayaking at Kilby, June 5, '11

Sun. morning, June 5th.

Arrived at Kilby where I had been for a walk along the beach last month but when I arrived at the parking lot, was stunned to see how high the water had come up. There was literally NO beach... the water was right to the parking lot... which made it easy to lift my kayak off my car and into the water.

I paddled under the Harrison River Bridge, turned around, paddled under the CN bridge, then came back to the parking lot. My first paddle of the year and can't wait to get out again!

No pics of my kayak or of myself... wasn't planning on posting a report but since I've been seeing so many other paddlers posting pictures of their recent trips, thought I would join in.

Kilby last month:


Kilby this month:


Mt. Woodside (saw the paragliders out). Claudia (claus), was that you?!


nesting birds


Mt. Cheam


Harrison Bay


Mt. McGuire (maybe you can see Kelly, Mark and Tristan if you look really hard).

It's a beautiful paddle through there. I'd like to go again sometime this year.
