Thieves’ Bay is in the Magic Lake area of Pender Island. In summer it is a busy area with vacationers enjoying the colors of the setting sun. Rumour has it that it is also a great place to watch whales, but we have yet to experience that….of course our noisy children would probably be capable of scaring a pod away.
My husband and I love off-season travel. It is calmer without the tourist crowd and you tend to see the “real” side of the places you visit. This little spot with a great view is no exception, we love it in winter. There may be a chill in the air, and perhaps a bit of wind (or more than a bit!), but in winter you can have the view and the sunset all to yourself.
