My Kayaking Treadmill

It has to be a windy day to keep me off the water! I’ve got a lovely sea kayak for longer outings with friends, but when I’m on my own I stick close to shore in my little inflatable kayak. It’s easy to carry down to the shore of Cadboro Bay in Gyro Park, and it’s a terrific boat for paddling along the rocky shoreline.

This is a great photo for showing Cadboro Bay and the offshore islands where I go kayaking with my friends. The circular road showing in the photograph is Ring Road on the campus of the University of Victoria, where I’m finishing my MA in Canadian Literature. I like how this aerial photo shows my home waters and my alma mater.
