Kayaking Cortes - October 2006

Who woulda thought that kayaking in October in Canada would bring such bluebird skies and seas of glass? Three days of bliss! We put in at Heriot Bay on Quadra Island, spent our first night on Hill Island and our second in Von Donop Inlet on Cortes after exploring the Penn Islands and Whale Passage. And save a foggy morning on day 3, it was calm seas and sun the whole time. Check out the Breton Islands to see the seals sunning themselves! Our big mottled seal friend, however, was hanging out in the Penn Islands.
