So I am not working and have a little bit more energy and free time on my hands. I decide to break out the inflatable SUP (Blackfin Model XL) that my wife got me last summer for my birthday. I used it once after getting it but then the weather became too inhospitable (i.e. I became too afraid of the cold as I am generally a fair-weather activity person). I did use it a tonne on a trip to Big Island, Hawaii in November 2019 but then it was in storage for the winter. I decided it would be a good idea to start in some calm local waters so I did a little trip through False Creek. Ironically the first time that I ever did SUP was in False Creek years ago (circa 2009/10). We rented boards from a shop in Granville Island and paddled out around Vanier Park for some beverages on boards in the sun.
This was the route that I took. I am not sure what happened at the start of the GPS recording. My signal must have run into some interference.
This was a fun time and could be a nice pandemic past-time.
