My wife took the dog for a walk down in the bay this morning and said there is still lots of ice in the bay. I hope it melts or moves into the bay more by tomorrow. Maybe we have to launch from the boat launch? I might go down there this afternoon and check it out again.

Hmm, thanks for the update Michael. Forecasts vary for tomorrow but overall it looks like potential for a sailable SE. I have the van packed on standby so any ice update and/or OSR is much appreciated.
Hope to see you and a few others tomorrow.

Just got back from an ice check and it still looks sketchy.

Boat Launch, might be the best bet tomorrow.

Yikes, are those pictures from Centennial Beach or Baffin Island!! Even the boat ramp looks sketchy, so I better bring my Nexus card tomorrow too.

Yikes, where did it come from, there was nothing there on Saturday. Must of pushed in from across the border or sucked out from 72nd 64th... I rode Saturday and everything was clear! Wow

The webcam does not seem to be working. Any news on the ice situation today (Tuesday Jan 21)?

Not sure yet, waiting for the wind to pick up again before I go down.

Not sure when you were there but these pictures are from Saturday. That's why I ended up in Point Roberts. I'm amazed it had all gone by the time you got there.
