Day 12: Pruth Bay, Calvert Island

Day 12: Pruth Bay, Calvert Island

Tuesday, June 25

Went back over to West Beach this morning then to North Beach via the trail that leads from the north end of West Beach. This trail is not as flat and level than the one to West Beach, with some clambering required, but not difficult. The Hakai Beach Institute has installed new board walks over the muddiest bits and stairs at the steepest bits. There is a wetland midway across with lots of native water lilies. North Beach faces Hakai Passage and it rivals West Beach for beauty. No one else was there and we enjoyed the solitude and sunshine. Ron took lots of photos and I did a bit of yoga on the sand. Fabulous. We debated about going up to a lookout on the south end of West Beach when we got back but realized the incoming tide would have stranded us so came back to Snug for lunch. Good thing, because not long afterwards the wind started to blow and the rain came bucketing down. I spent the afternoon knitting. One of my goals for this trip is to finish several works-in-progress that I brought along, and today I finished the first one — a pair of socks. Yay!
