Adventure Kayak magazine's blog recently published a list they describe as "a completely arbitrary, shamelessly biased and utterly made-up list of the 10 best places to live for sea kayaking." You can't get more definitive than that.
It mentions a number of places like Portland, San Fransisco and San Diego on the west coast, and Halifax and New York on the east coast as well as some inland spots like Parry Sound, Ontario, hometown of Bobby Orr, the greatest hockey player ever! Now I have two reasons to visit there! But I digress.
Which city did Adventure Kayak list as number one? Our hometown Victoria, BC, which they describe as "...infamously home to the 'newly wed and nearly dead,' Victoria residents happily spend their in-between years sea kayaking. If you can get over the skyrocketing real estate prices this pocket-sized city may have the highest per capita coastline and beauty quotient in Canada if not the world."
Couldn't agree more. Now if only they'd stop telling everyone else about us....
