Portland Island Kayak Campout - Sep 19-21

The SISKA campout for 2014 was a kayak camping weekend at Portland Island, Sep 19-21!

The 15 of us enjoyed spectacular summery weather, light winds for paddling and great camaraderie!

The usual checking-out of everyone's camping gear inspired Janice Weninger to go online with her phone and get a great deal on a good used Hennessy Hammock right from the spit at Arbutus Point!


The two young sisters who shared the campsite with their Dad and our gang over the weekend found a fun-loving grandma in Beverely Hipolito, and learned to make origami creations with Stephen.

Whether we were fishing, hiking the island trails, paddling around Russell and Moresby Islands, or just enjoying each others good company in the camp, we all felt very fortunate to have had such a delightful Fall kayak camping experience!
