8:50 a.m. Ruckle Park walk-in Camp Ground
Tidy campers getting the first great weather of the season.
Ruckle Provincial Park is a great place anytime, but particularly nice during an early spring morning. Ocean and mountain views, easy trails, a great place to breathe.
8:00 a.m. Blackburn Lake, Salt Spring Island
Blackburn Lake was once known for its proximity to a dump, an organic golf course and clothing optional swimmers.
The dump is now a transfer station, the golf course is history with the land is quickly reverting to its wild state, and the Salt Spring Conservancy now owns about 30 acres bordering the lake. The stunning morning views are completely free.
A sign of Spring and a backyard Sunday still life.
4:30 p.m. Fernwood Beach, just NW of the wharf/pier/dock thingy
A beach a low tide can be a very different place. We get a chance to see what’s resting on the bottom when the water’s not there. Good thing to remember in a boat.
