An Infinity Pool – In it’s natural form

DSCN6332Here’s my inspiration for an “infinity pool”.  Today was a gorgeous day for a hike up Pender Hill with views down to Hotel Lake.

Pender Hill is also a great hike with boat access. Tie up at Irvines Landing.  A 20 minute waterfront stroll along Lee  Road brings you to the trail Head.  Another 20 minutes to the summit and you have fantastic views of Pender Harbour, down the Malaspina and across to Texada and Vancouver Islands.

 

 

Arbutus Berries

They’re not all that great for jam ( but maybe someone will find a use for them in some kind of avant garde artisanal gin).

But, the bright red berries do have a stark beauty telling us it’s late fall. This tree has more berries than most. It has lots of sun and a great view of Welcome Passage.

It really doesn’t matter if it rains at the Skookumchuck

So what if it’s a rainy day. A great day for a hike into the Skookumchuck Narrows. For the guys surfing the tidal flow, what difference does it make if they’re in the rain. They’re getting wet anyway.

The hike into Skookumchuck is about an hour on a pretty decent trail. Driving in with your kayak on top might be a mistake.
