On August 10, five club members and three guests paddled from the beach at Len Road to Village Bay, launching about 10 a.m. The original destination for the day’s trip was Granite Bay/Small Inlet, but a forecast of strong winds suggested we switch to a more protected area. Weather was mainly sunny, with a headwind on the way out, and a corresponding boost on the way back (and a bit of favourable current). We were inspected along the way by some mother seals with pups (as well as gulls, eagles, loons and mergansers). With a lunch break at Village Bay, the trip took 4½ hours with a distance paddled of 16.8 km.
