      Day Two
      Today's stage started with a long 14 km climb and we settled into the back of our wave until we hit some new single track. We climbed 500m of elevation but hit a backlog straight away. Luckily we were able to get around them and began another technical decent with slippery rock faces this time. Our hands hurt with the long technical decent and we got a short respite before the Enduro downhill. Once ...

      ... was warm for the first 30cms so we just floated about in the shallows. Coming to a beach and taking a swim was definitely marking the summer now.

      We followed the coastal highway up to our destination of the twin cities of Courtenay and Comox which are separated by a river. Comox is home to a large Canadian Air Force base and Courtenay was just a typical city. We checked into the Best Western Plus and lay down in a proper bed for the first time since Vancouver ...

      Thursday was a 45 minute trip to Mt Washington, Strathcona Park once we had ferried across from Denman. This mountain has a myriad of ski runs where poeple from the Island flock to come winter. Their "winter" ran almost into summer as this year they were still skiing at the end of June. As a consequence as we walked a track that climbed steadily between cedar and douglas fir trees we inevitably ran into snow drifts! Being summer and ...

      ... of a joke for us girls lol. Michael did a good job but that can't be said for us haha. We were pummelled by waves for the majority of the time, occassionally catching waves but only managing to get on our knees! We did however stick it out for 5 hours to our suprise as we got back to the car and checked the time. It was hard work getting out of the cold and wet wetsuits but we did it! Once we were dry and warmed up (though Caryl and Livi stayed frozen convinced it was the chill we ...

      For the past five years we've camped at Comox Lake for a couple of days the first week of July, so it was only fitting that we scheduled in a trip before our long drive across Canada to Halifax, to say farewell.

      The weather co-operated, providing perfect kayaking and camping weather. My youngest son, Colt, and his friend, Ira, led me on a power hike up ...
