Day 2 Victoria to Cadboro Bay.

Day 2 the Pulling Together Canoe Journey moving from Victoria through Oak Bay. Thanks Mayor Nils Jensen and Oak Bay Police for saying hi at lunch.

The weather was fantastic. The crews were in good spirits as the second day allowed for new paddlers to learn more about the canoe culture.

A protocol at Cadboro Bay was done before landing.

Now the warm up days are done. Some serious paddling over next few days.
