It's been a great summer for being outdoors and I've enjoyed kayaking at Hornby Island, Nanaimo and Ladysmith with various borrowed boats. Still need to learn how to re-enter a boat from the water, but I'll wait for a wet suit for that! Here's my niece and I ready to disembark from Whaling Station Bay on Hornby Island. Texada Island is in the background. Note the interesting "potholes" eroded in the sandstone shore.
