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?

start of the Sunshine Coast Trail

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.

This area is known for Oyster farms.


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

Good FUN so far. Not much sleep.

I was a “leader” for a kid’s Adventure Race, Saturday. My team was the youngest. We finished LAST after 4.5hrs.

Though my little guys made it around the very difficult course safely, they both fell off their bikes on the last couple of hundred metres to the finish line.
