After waiting for the green light from our Restart Committee I proposed a little expedition to Comox Lake for the kayaking group. I was pleased that 10 people responded in the affirmative.
I was soon to learn the meaning of the old expression about "the best laid plans......". Sadly, by the time the day arrived a combination of several minor injuries to participants and the recent heat wave, our numbers shrunk to 5. I decided it would be easier to launch here at Astra Bay so cars arrived with kayaks attached. However, the weather gremlins had one more trick up their sleeves. What had started off as a nice calm day on the water had turned into a challenging 20 knot wind.
Being the champions of adaptability, a collective decision was made to pivot to a lemonade party at the water's edge. An enjoyable time was had by all and further kayaking adventures will be planned when my injured ribs have healed.
