A magnificent day, the mist was floating through the harbour in the morning and before mid-day the sun broke through. Six kayakers took this trip, we began at Gowlland Harbour Resort Boat launch. Kayaked around Fawn Island, the islands had wonderful displays of yellow, pink and blue wildflowers, extra succulent this year because of all the moisture. Kayaked around Stag Island, seals sunning themselves, counted a number of eagles plus the geese showing off their babies. Enjoyed lunch on May Island, here the eagles gave us a display. Kayaked over the boat wreck and then over to the shores of Quadra. The rockface with cascading water and wildflowers was amazing. We were filled up with beauty. Returned to the boat launch at 3.p.m. We all enjoyed this magical spring display. 9.1km; 3½ hours.
