Richard proposed an evening paddle on Portage Inlet and Louise and I readily accepted.
The weather was cloudy, so we weren't expecting any sort of gorgeous sunset. Often it seems like Spring and Fall in Victoria only last about two weeks each, a brief transitional buffer between winter and summer, and this week was following suit as clouds, wind and rain greeted the equinox.
Despite the weather, Richard was keen to begin.
We paddled down The Gorge...
...and into Portage Inlet as the sun went down.
I did my bit to keep the waters clean by fishing this bottle out of the Inlet. Dr.McGillicuddy's Fireball Whiskey Shooter. Looks like good stuff.
This was a great paddle! Calm and clear water, gorgeous conditions. We paddled around the Inlet savoring the transition from day to night.
Then the Dr. McGillicuddy's kicked in.
