We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
Last Saturday we decided to not go far from Gillies Bay as the snowline was low on the bluffs above the bay. A short drive to the Texada Airport and then hiking down to Cox's Lagoon and along the beach to Sandbanks was really quite nice, cool certainly, but with no wind blowing not at all unpleasant. We searched in vain for the tiny black dorsal fins of the Harbour Porpoise that were here every time we visited through from early spring to late summer. Lunch at the base of the sand slide then up the steep path and back to the start on the old logging roads.
My photo is one I took on the recent hike north from Hydro East. A small creek appears from the dark forest and plunges down a series of small steps in the unusually pale bedrock. The short vegetation on both sides and mossy rocks here and there make a strikingly attractive natural rock garden scene that I just had to capture.
