I went kayaking, in Portage Inlet, which is the top of what is known in Victoria as "The Gorge" (not Gorge, but _The_ Gorge). It was wonderful. I love it. It would be perfect if you could take dogs along :)
Many thanks to my friend sheilap for taking me out!!
Here's me, looking much more proficient than I felt :)
My friend Sheila, showing me how it should be done.
And me again, looking pleased with myself.
