Took advantage of a beautiful, warm spring day (our first so far I think) on Saturday, June 5th to do a paddle I hadn't done for a while. I felt guilty about having to drive the 1.8km to the nearest put-in from my house, but that guilt quickly evaporated once I paddled into Cordova Bay towards Zero Rocks. I sustained what I felt was a fairly strong pace, and managed to cover the 5.6km distance in 45 minutes. I rounded the light and made my way against a moderate ebb current to D'Arcy Island, a distance of about 4.5km, in another 45 minutes. I thought I deserved a rest, so I took a short breather and soaked up some sunshine as the sole occupant of D'Arcy Island before paddling back. It's not a very scenic paddle (it's mostly open stretches), but sometimes it's just fun to go out and paddle hard for a few hours. Especially when you can be a thousand miles from civilization within an hour of pulling out of your driveway.
