out past the Oyster shell piles and straight out the bay about 7 km past far enough that Coffin Island was visible past Sharp Point.

On the way back, just past the big red buoy, I grabbed the camera to shoot a passing sailboat. I ran onto a big chunk of waterlogged bark. It slowed the board and i pulled my attention off the camera, step back to keep from falling on my ass, and again, and again, and I walked right off the back of the board. Climbed back on, blew my lens clear and paddled off. Couldn't shake the thought that I had lost something, and ran the inventory a few times. Better than a km along I looked back to check for boat traffic and the sun hit me in the eyes. Left my hat back there somewhere. I turned around and made straight at the buoy. It's just an old hat. Allister gave it to me back when there was a Ucluelet Storm Surf Shop so it's got to be 17 or 18 years old? I guess I would have tried to find it even if I didn't have a fixed point of reference. I'm just out puttering around anyway. Paddled right to it. It was like 2 or 3 feet off my course.

real nice paddle after dinner. Just bounced around the bay for an hour and a half. A crew of longboat paddlers from Shell Beach. Lots of seals and a pair of bald eagles in the fade of day. Left the board out on the lawn. Gotta get out more.

Couldn't find the Derelict Sailboat last month because it's on the bottom, couple of hundred feet south of the shellfish lease. From my window I noticed a rowboat checking something out and saw a sliver of gunwale through the spotting scope. Headed out and shot a few photos. I have always liked rowing but I prefer standing and looking forward.

the Derelict Sailboat came off the Page Point dock to the left in the first photo

Nice paddle on a sunny day, out the bay and back along the Woods islands. Cut between the islands and up Burleith Arm to Page Point. Noticed the old Derelict Sailboat was gone. Good bit of the dock where it was tied as well. Went up to the head of the bay scouting for it but no sign.

headed up to Transfer Beach to catch the Polar Bear Swim. Haven't been out for a while so I put the 4/3 BZ on and was sweating in minutes. Had to peel it back to the waist. It was freezing and sunny and could feel the bite of the cold but just kept on sweating buckets. Coast Guard Auxiliary slowly passed me heading the same way. They told me I was doing 7 knots but I'm not sure they got that right. I was getting a good workout but that would be close to 13km an hour. Seems too fast to me. Got out to Slag Point early so I kept going and did a wide loop and back to Transfer along the far shoreline. Snapped a few pics and headed home. Real nice workout after a three week pause in paddling.
