For Louise and I it's been a slow start to the paddling year. What with the flu, the holiday season, family obligations, the flu that came back and so on, we're stilling waiting on the first paddle of the year. Paula's made it out a few times, but we still haven't got our paddles wet yet. Ah well, life is like that sometimes.
But some people did get out on the water today. We briefly met Paula and Bernie for a quick coffee at Cadboro Bay before we did some necessary errands, and we saw that the sail boaters were out early.
We also saw SISKA members getting organized for their first paddle of the season.
Mike Jackson reported that 28 boats hit the water for their paddle around the bay. One of these days we'll get our 2012 paddling season started.
On the plus side, we did find an interesting face or two at the coffee shop.
