Yesterday, we canoed to Osprey Creek South on Pitt Lake, BC, about 15 km from the put in. We had glassy waters and a nice push from the tide (Pitt is a tidal lake). After a very relaxing afternoon, we waited as long as we could for the typical afternoon winds to abate, but by 6 pm, they had only subsided a bit. Oh well--we paddled the 15 km into the wind and waves and against the tide and made it back to the dock just before dark in 3 hours. We were pooped!
