Long delayed spring 2011 prevent me went out earlier. But I really can't wait anymore and used first relatively hot and sunny day to open the season.
7:10 AM I drove out of underground garage on Front St W and headed to hwy 400.
9:40 AM I was at the Woods bay Marina. Since last year they finally finished repairing the Muskoka Rd 11 and it takes much less time to drive there from hwy 69.
|My trip from Moon Marina (B) to the Sharpe Island (A) and back.|
12:00 PM I left behind the Pleasant Island (I rounded it from Northeast) and headed toward Shrack Island
12:30 PM I passed a narrow strait at Sharpe Island, left behind a few small islands and enter the system of small inner bays which I loved since discovering them last summer.

19:30 I was back at marina. This time I passed the South channel of the Captain Allan Strait, but I think the way through North channel is little bit shorter.
20:10 PM I left the Woods Bay marina.
21:50 PM ESSO Gas station near Dunlop St.
23:58 PM Called Irina from the garage.
The 2011 summer kayak season is open!!!
