Expedition[edit]

I had been lazy and did not keep track of hashes for a while, but a friend asked me about geohashing for some university course (yes, it will likely be included in some GIS classes at UBC) So I checked to find this great waterhash really close to home. I already had my canoe on me from a little paddle in the morning so decided it needed to be done. I was unable to find any drag alongs so went by myself. I launched at the little beach at the end of Foster St. in Esquimalt around 17.00 and canoed out. I reached the hash at 17.30 continued to fisgard lighthouse for some pictures and was back at my car around 18.30. There was some light rain, and very light winds. A perfectly nice paddel in the evening.

there was much widlife to see: Harbour seals, river otter, bald eagle, bunch of gulls, common mergansers, great blue heron, canada goose, other duck like things. fun was had.
