It rained last night but not enough to really make a difference. It was dark and threatening most of the day so we stayed around the RV park.
There were a couple more hikes I would have liked to do but they were long, high and steep to viewpoints. We weren’t going to expend all that effort if were didn’t get the reward at the end, due to the cloudy skies.
Jennie wanted to go check out the tidal flats in bay in front of the park. At low tide they extend a long way out.
As I headed down I saw this lonely poppy.
There were barnacle encrusted clam shells everywhere.
Every time we turned a rock or clam shell over, at least 6 tiny crabs would run for cover. Some of the “bigger” ones would back into a corner and raise their claws ready for a fight.
Everything was encrusted.
These birds were cracking open the mussels for a meal.
Looking back towards the RV park.
Some of Jennie’s collection.
I left her out there while I checked out the rest of the RVs in the park.
The park is a series of tiers going back from the water. The first two tiers have great views of the bay but only have 15 amp power and no sewer. There are no full timers in those sites. The back 4 tiers contain 60 full service sites. Of those 60 I would say that there are only about 8 free for “transients” like us. The rest are here for good.
If we came here again I think we would bite the bullet and stay at a site with the full water view. I am kind of regretting that we didn’t move.
As I walked through the full time area, there were some really nice porches and decks.
This one is really into gardening.
Of the full service sites, these three and two below them are the only one with an unobstructed view.
We headed into town to do some shopping, to use up the rest of the day.
Tomorrow we move a bit farther north to Nanaimo.
