After our ViSalus Shakes, we started off at about 9:00am, paddling to the N/W corner of Skaha Lake then put up our sails on our kayaks then sailed with the North wind to the Soda Springs where we found a cold waterfall with Tufa rock deposits then to Okanagan Falls then after a break for lunch we paddled across to the South East corner of the lake with the wind still blowing from the North against us, mainly following the shoreline up the East side of the lake. The head wind blew all the way as we continued up the shoreline. Ducking into the odd bay to cut down on the head wind. A 6 hour paddle time round trip. Returning to where we put in at about 4:30pm. Was a hard paddle at times. Was entertaining watching the IronMan runners and bikes go by along the East side of the lake as we returned.
