This afternoon’s playground


Got a bunch of work done today so to celebrate I headed out on my SUP for an hour long paddled from Tunstall Bay to Cape Roger Curtis across pristine shoreline teeming with life. Gulls eating starfish and anemones, oystercatchers with their high pitched calls skimming the top if the way. Eagles soaring over the trees.

Only the slightest hint of a headwind outward bound but glassy still on the return leg. It’s so quiet out here today.

And the beauty of living on the South Coast of BC in winter is that Sunday I will go skiing with the kids over at Cypress Mountain.

Beach in Friday, ski hills on Sunday. Winter ain’t so bad after all.

  1. Chris, I’ve been timid about going out in the winter… what clothing did you wear? Do you have a wetsuit?

  2. I wear a farmer John from MEC, a paddling jacket, 3mm gloves and 7mm booties and a life jacket. No problem in the water now which is about six degrees.
