Todd and Deb paddle past Little Samuelson Island off Mayne Island.  It was time for a mini-vacation.  We caught the last Thursday night ferry from Vancouver on May 21st, and returned on the 5:05pm from Mayne to Galiano to Tsawassen.  We even saw orca/killer whales in Active Pass on the ferry from Galiano to Mayne Island.

Deb paddles past some of the fantastic sandstone carved by the wave action of the Georgia Strait.

We paddled with Mayne Island Kayaking, located at Blue Vista Resorts.  Owner Doug Peers was our guide, and he led us through the currents so we could see lots of harbour seals, a sea lion, oyster catchers, guillemots, and eagles.
