    Yesterday we went to Kye Bay by Comox , right at the edge of the water we were getting bit by looked to be maybe juvenile sea lice , just little buggers that gave u a good bite on our barefeet . Never happened before in all the years I have been going there . People in deeper water didn't seem affected . Wouldn't want to get attacked by a swarm of them .....

    Anyone else have this happen ?
