A few of you here know that I do a paddling trip with my kids each summer. This year, my son had other things that he wanted to do so it was just my daughter and I. Our adventure this year was a nine day kayaking trip around the Broken Group Islands in Barkley Sound (on the west coast of Vancouver Island). To say that it was a good time would be an understatement. We had a fantastic time, paddling around nearly all the islands, meeting lots of really cool people (and a few um, interesting ones), cooking and eating great meals, and simply having a really, really fun time together.
We didn't see any whales on this trip but we did get lots of time playing around in rock gardens and exploring shorelines, arches, and caves.
Anyway, we got back from our trip a month ago and it's taken me this long to finish writing the trip report (it's a long one) and I hope you'll enjoy it.
For those of you who kayak and have never been to the Broken Group, you need to go -- it's a fabulous and magical place. For those of you have been there already, you know what I'm talking about.
