warm sunny November day and a nice paddle out past Ladysmith Marina, Ladysmith and Saltaire sawmills, dry log sort, government wharfs and boat launch, maritime society wharfs, dogpatch anchorage, and slag point made from coal slag and a coal terminal a hundred years and more ago. Maybe 7 km and a great way to spend a few hours.

Nice leisurely paddle out around the Dunsmuir Islands. Lots of forest fire smoke in the air and 30+c

went out on a low tide today. Across to Page Point and under the gangways. Starting to see clusters of starfish. Looks like they're making a comeback. Went out between the Woods Islands nearly as far as the Dunsmuir Islands and turned back up the other side of the bay. The Ospreys and nest are on an old wood chip conveyer used to load barges. All the chip seems to be moved to the pulp mills by truck these days.

Paddled up to the head of the bay in midday sunshine. Glassy calm all the way until the way back. Slipped into Bush Creek and by the time i came in a south wind was blowing up the bay, cold and full of fog. Could have used thicker wetsuit for the rest of the way home.

Sunny awesome day. Paddled out the bay past transfer beach. Stopped at slag point. Thought I was dragging something but the fin was clear. As I set the board back down in the water, there, inches from the shore was a Nudibranch. Don't usually see them so shallow. A few dog walkers came over for a look and wondered why I didn't have my great dane on the sup with me.

Cut across the bay in front of the fog bank, slipping up from the south. Kinda took the long way around at every turn and just thoroughly enjoyed the paddle. Approaching the Woods Islands, it's nice that the southern point no longer has it's wrecked boat ornament on it. The wreck is in the Govt Warf parking lot with claim it or lose it sign posted by the town. Good to see someone cleaning them up. Cut between the Woods Islands, through the wet log sort and up Burleith Arm

leisurely 8 or 9 km paddle in the sunshine today. A tug and some dozer boats working today but not much else moving on the water. Lots of autumn colour and a Lion's mane jellyfish along the way. Sunny, warm and the world is right with me today
