The other evening I was having a virtual chat with West Coast Kayaker about Pender Island and I realized I had yet to share any pictures of the beach at the end of Craddock Drive on South Pender Island. This is one of my family’s favorite spots with its cool rock formations, plenty of rocks for throwing and driftwood to climb on. We have also discovered little treasures on this beach such as beach glass and shells different to the ones we have found up on North Pender Island. It is a great place for sketching and photography with beautiful views, and quite often warm sunshine.
On this particular day Mount Baker, in Washington State, was amazing. Our children ran ahead of us and down the steps to the beach. We immediately heard “Mommy, Mommy come quick!” (Of course my immediate thought was “what now, who did what” and expecting an injury or at least an incident!) There at the bottom of the steps, looking down the beach our children had stopped in their tracks and were staring at Mount Baker. It was amazing with the snowy peaks contrasting against the blue sky. Memorable.
