Sea kayaking at Comox Lake
by Keith and Heather Nicol
November 23 we decided to check out Comox Lake with our kayaks since the sun
was shining and the wind was forecast to be light. We drove through Cumberland
and put in at the boat launch at Cumberland Lake Park (GPS coordinates - 10 U
0349475 E 5449247 N). Since the boat launch was in the shade we decided to paddle
across the lake to some of the beaches that were facing into the sun. We had
fine views of the snow capped mountains in the distance and the late November
sun even seemed to have some warmth while we had lunch on one of the beaches.
After lunch we paddled back around the edge of the lake to the boat launch.
The snow capped mountains in the distance really add to the scenery
