We will meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am
Last week we were lucky to have a short break in the rainy weather just in time for our hike. Even the wind died down and it was quite pleasant as we hiked from our Eagle Creek parking place down to the sea at the north end of Davie Bay. The rain and wind was forecast to start again in the early afternoon so we kept the hike a little shorter than usual. I noticed as we left the lunchspot near Bun Island that there were plenty of whitecaps way out to sea as the southeast wind increased. I believe the island gets it's name from the shape, and this is something I was told by a Texada old-timer who camped nearby as a girl before the first World War.
