Tidal Skating Rink

Sorry Kids.  No ice rink this year.  Somebody just pulled plug.

Homesite Creek provides just enough freshwater into the cove to give us a skiff of ice over the long arm when temps drop to just a few degrees below the freezing point.  As it gets colder, and when the cold stretch gets longer its lots of fun watching the ice break and reform like a jigsaw puzzle with each tide change.

Turnagain Island

A short tour around Turnagain Island – we hardly had to leave the cove…

Beaches are great for landing kayaks, but sometimes they're just not there.  The kelp bed on this rocky shelf made for a great parking spot and a good jumping off point to explore the rocky shoreline.

Turnagain Bench
A pretty awesome view from Turnagain out to the Strait.

These succulents (?) were everywhere. Clinging to every crack in the rock.

Beach Trash
Every beach gets its trash. In these rocks are the usual suspects: foam, vodka bottle, string, paper, wood….
