A Winter Afternoon at Bridges Road – Pender Island, BC, Canada

Waves Come In

Recently the beach at the end of Bridges Road has become a favorite place for our children.

Watching the Waves

They love to watch the ferries go by and the waves crash in.

Climbing on driftwood and drawing in the sand is always fun.

The latest activity that really draws our children to this beach is hunting for beach glass; according to my 9-year-old it is easier to find beach glass on a sandy beach than on a rocky beach.

On this particular day we had the low golden sun of winter lighting the rocks, with the waves lapping up. We found lots of beach glass in colors of white, green, brown, blue and turquoise.


Our biggest find of the day was in the tidal pool where we discovered a beautiful green anemone.

  1. Bridges Road beach was a special place for us for many years. A dear friend, now no longer with us, lived just up from the beach on Stanley Point Road. So many good and warm memories. Thanks for sharing these gorgeous pictures, Deb.

      I’m pleased you enjoyed the pictures.

      How is the weather at the moment on Pender? We are hoping to pop out for a few days in a week and a bit.

      • Hi Deb. The weather is looking pretty good for the upcoming weekend and into early next week. Looks like we’re in for a nasty windstorm tonight, so be thankful you’ll be missing that.

        When you are here, and you have some spare time, I would really like to meet you and your family in person. Here’s my email address: greghankins@shaw,ca

        I know how rushed these trips can be, so don’t worry if you don’t have time this time.
