S’mores & S’unset

All photos taken on May 19, 2022. What better way to end the perfect day than with S’mores on the back deck and then a walk down to the inlet to watch the sun set. After all, we had brought the roasting sticks from home, we had marshmallows, chocolate and biscuits left and a backContinue reading “S’mores & S’unset”

Benji Shines

All photos taken on May 19, 2022. Hey readers! Benji, the Most Excellent Wonder Dog here. Why Most Excellent, you ask? Well, Sit and Stay, then, if you Beg Pretty, Roll Over and Play Dead, I’ll tell you my tail. Yeah I spelt it my way. Take it up with my agent, if you haveContinue reading “Benji Shines”

En-Raptor-ed

All photos taken on May 19, 2022. When we were planning our stay at Port Renfrew, Patty was giddy with excitement for me. She said, “Now you will get lots of photos of eagles.” I was excited too, to tell the truth. I saw an eagle flying by our ferry when crossing to the IslandContinue reading “En-Raptor-ed”

Sombrio Beach Daydreaming

All photos taken May 19, 2022. After retracing our steps across the bridge, we again turned right and soon found ourselves down at a gorgeous beach. Others were there, but the beach was not crowded in any sense of the word. We all agreed we could sit here for a while and contemplate our dayContinue reading “Sombrio Beach Daydreaming”

Sombrio Beach Hike

All photos taken on May 19, 2022. As we drove back out of Parkinson Creek to the chorus of HOLE! the question of what to do next was put to the group. B had another hike in mind, but was Patty up to it and was anyone else interested. Nobody had made a decision byContinue reading “Sombrio Beach Hike”

On the Rocks

All photos taken on May 19, 2022. As we popped out onto the beach from the Parkinson Creek to Beach trail, we saw why our efforts to hike the trail were more than worth it. The sunny blue skies and the azure seas were in total harmony with the grey rock beach. It was jawContinue reading “On the Rocks”

Parkinson Creek Trailhead Hike – Juan de Fuca Trail

All photos taken May 19, 2022. The day was gorgeous but cool and we knew the forest and trails would be wet and muddy, but we set off to hike parts of the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail anyway. The Juan de Fuca Marine Trail is a rugged 47 kilometres (29 mi) wilderness hiking trail located within Juan deContinue reading “Parkinson Creek Trailhead Hike – Juan de Fuca Trail”

Down by the Water

All photos taken on May 19, 2022. On the previous rainy morning, we had walked down to Port San Juan and Pacific Gateway Marina, to get the lay of the land and the view from there. It was raining then, so we cut the visit short and did not spot the path down to theContinue reading “Down by the Water”

A Better Morning

All photos taken on May 19, 2022. The weather forecast for today held great promise, mostly sunny, albeit still cool, with lighter winds. It would be a good day for hiking, but the forest would still be very wet. We enjoyed our coffee and watched the inlet greet the day. A Better Morning © MistContinue reading “A Better Morning”

Botanical Beach

All photos taken on May 18, 2022. Given we had a power outage and could do little in the cottage, we opted to complete our hike from the previous day and stop at Botanical Beach. There ought to be some real rough seas this day. We stopped briefly at the Wild Renfrew office and theyContinue reading “Botanical Beach”
