kayaking Desolation Sound

After our spiritual leader – Blill – led our hiking group down from Manzanita hut to civilization, we had 2 extra days on a B.C. hiking holiday.

What to do?

We decided to rent kayaks on Okeover inlet and paddle into the Marine Park. It was inexpensive. C$31 each for an assortment of fibreglass and plastic singles and doubles.

The weather on the water was fantastic. Very calm.

When it got too hot – needless to say – water fights broke out.

One oddity was seeing a deer in the salt water. It needed salt, we assumed.
