2006.10.25 - Sidney Harbour

Today we headed out to Sidney to putter around the Harbour. This was our first trip out this way, and the weather was great, easily the nicest day we've had so far this year.

Paula moves ahead in the kayak sweepstakes. Now she owns three. Her latest is this small inflatable. She wanted something that she could transport around easily on her tricycle or even the bus, and this little guy certainly foots the bill.
(But she's a little embarrassed about how much she's spent on kayak stuff recently, so don't tell her folks. It'll be our little secret.)
While Paula took a quick bathroom break before we started, Bernie took it out for a little spin. (He was a little embarrassed that he took out Paula's new kayak before she officially christened it, so don't tell her. It'll be our little secret.)

Mr. Kayakhead, Canada's only inflatable crimefighter!

So here's Paula, smiling and finally in the water in her new kayak. She's paddling in front of the world's largest block of Neapolitan ice cream. (Bernie had already gone through and had eaten all the chocolate.)

We weren't the only boats on the water!

No eagles today, but a cormorant found us slightly interesting.

Here's Bernie in Paula's second boat. He's smiling, too!

Dennis was also in a smiling mood!

Louise is smiling, too! You'd think we were all having fun or something!

Alison's smiling because she's back from vacation and isn't lending her boat to amateurs like the rest of us anymore. :)

Many readers have asked how we transport our kayaks around. (Actually, none have. But we can dream.) Anyway, here's me loading two kayaks on my van.

Dennis and Bernie are in deep discussion about something to do with length and depth perception.
