Sea Lions popping their sweet heads out of the water, star fish covering the ocean floor a bald eagle closer then we have ever seen and us gliding through it all in kayaks!
Last weeks adventure started at the end of a dusty dirt road leading away from Pourpise Bay Provincial Park. Pedals and Paddles an Outdoor Adventure, rental and guided tour company with the kindest owners and wonderful boats, was the start of our epic day on the water. Every direction we turned offered us a view more stunning then you ever thought possible. I will be honest, living surrounded by mountains in Colorado it is hard to impress me with a mountain view, but when the mountains rise up out of the ocean, it’s magic!
Here is a glimpse of what made that day so special:
Some new friends, we also saw beautiful sea lions, but I was so entranced watching them I forgot to take any pictures!
Not quite as adorable as the sea lions, but the star fish were great!
Amazing! I can’t believe the boys had the opportunity to see this eagle so close.
A stop for lunch
Our Lunch Spot was Oyster Beach – . I am very glad we didn’t meet any bears that wanted to share our lunch, or eat us for their lunch!!!
Sea shells bigger then cell phones.! You can’t get any apps on them but much more soothing to the soul!
I could get used to this view
a beautiful way to travel!
My kayaking kings
Paddling up to shore at the end of the trip. I can’t believe he is still smiling after all that work against the wind! Tougher then I am – but don’t tell him. I hope to fool him for a few more years into thinking his mamma is tough!!! Not sure I can do that though, he is now a faster ice skater then I am (that was a sad moment for me!) and can kick my ass with the amount of push ups he can do, 25+ with out stopping. I won’t say how many I can do, but it is SIGNIFICANTLY lower!
A well deserved smile after paddling solo (and LOVING it) for miles and miles!
The double motor – now that is one fast boat and full of cuteness!
Zoli has some super paddle power to go with that cute smile
A little ray of sunshine in the middle hatch of the kayak like the prince he is.
Even the little ray of sunshine picked up the paddle and powered our boat right in to shore!
