We’re getting some gorgeous summer weather this week. With morning low tides and school out, the local beach is a popular spot. Yesterday when I was there, there was a stiff breeze which brought out several kite surfers. Because we’re located in the lee of Vancouver Island, we don’t get the big ocean swells. The water off the beach tends to be like a mill pond most of the time, yesterday we actually had a few little waves, even tho by any standard they were mere ripples…
