The SSS: Spanish Sunset SUP

Monday, June 6, 12022 HE

With the threat of the first inklings of meteorological summer about to depart, I got out for a quick sunset paddle at šxʷsyiΦəm (Spanish Banks). It was a rushed effort after putting the boys down for the night. I didn’t get on the water until 2115 hours. But the scenery rewarded my efforts.

Below is the view of the sunset from the banks of Locarno Beach. The photo was shot at 2114 hours, right at sunset, out over Səl̓ilw̓ət (Burrard Inlet) toward Nex̱wlélex̱m (Bowen Island).

The photo below is the start of the civil twilight as I make my way out onto the water.

I set my sights on the “First Mile Marker” dolphin. I had a headlamp packed in case I ran out of daylight en route.

I did make it to the mile marker and was treated to some spectacular lighting along the way.

Here are the map and statistics of my paddle recorded with Geo Tracker.
