We started at SUCIA for the Canadian May long weekend.
We were quite surprised that Fossil Bay was not very busy.

We’ve walked from Fossil to Shallow many many times and I’ve never really looked at this tree stump. It must have a story behind it.

Next we were  out for a couple of weeks at the end of July with our good friends in their “new to them” Tollycraft 44 now named  “HAT TRICK” (it’s their 3rd Tolly) but actually if you include their dog, who’s name is Tolly, it’s their 4th Tolly !

We traveled first to Reid Harbor, then to Prevost Harbor on Stuart Island.
We like it there. Great hikes!

Turn Point Light Station is a great hike. This year we had a tour of the small museum and the caretakers house that has is hosted by members of the Turn Point Lighthouse Preservation Society.

There is an unmarked path (maybe trail is a better word) that leads from the Lighthouse to another Viewpoint that looks to the NorthWest.

From there we headed to Pender Island and Poets Cove.

We dinghy’d over to the beach at Beaumont Park and hiked the trail to Mt. Norman.

The trail winds around the back side of the park and then ascends through the forest and then up a steep road to the lookout.

The lookout

It’s a good hike and definitely got the heart beating!
