The sea was angry that day…it was a mile high if it was a foot. OK I’m old, and I’m sure that no one actually gets that reference, but I will admit I was a little wary of this final extreme trip as the group stood in the middle of a torrential downpour and received their marching orders for the day. However, Jakob and Caelen, munching on their Uber delivered A&W offerings during this monsoon, knew better. The group put out from Deep Cove under the threat of rain, but as soon as the paddles hit the water the weather sorted itself out, and students spent the day paddling in mostly sunshine. Highlights of this trip included paddling on the shores of giant North Shore mansions, seeing harbour seals following the group, having lunch on a secluded point, and playing the paddle game which only got a little out of control. Students learnt paddling and steering techniques for ocean kayaks, and came to understand the serene experience that is travelling in an ocean kayak. The day concluded with Mr. Rahe finding other uses for the bilge pump and teaching Omran (and several others) that it’s never a good to try to ambush the teacher!
