The Jeep driving to Minister's Island at low tide

A guy digging clams at low tide - backbreaking, eh?

From the wharf in town - pretty picturesque

One of the yarn shops in town - they also sell live...

We haven't been able to bring ourselves to plan to leave here - our favorite place yet.

Weather is unseasonably warm, in the 80's, and perfect for biking for us Arizonans.

We did not explore the little Minister's Island that you reach by traveling the ocean floor at low tide since they want $12 cash per person to visit there and we have run ourselves out of Canadian cash in preparation for leaving Canada; but we did drive over to experience the low tide drive. We may bike that tomorrow.

A marine science center provided a good movie and entertainment today with a touch tidepool where we handled the starfish, clams and crabs then watched their two resident harbor seals being fed herring.

Views were beautiful over the harbor late in the afternoon from the town wharf and from their Canadian Heritage Site - a blockhouse that was built to defend their harbor from the US during the war of 1812.

Tonight we'll light our giant sparklers that our campground sells. They also have big packages of rockets we could shoot out over the bay but they scare me so we'll content ourselves with good old fashioned sparklers.
