Starvation Bay – Pender Island, BC

starvation bay, pender island, bcRecently I have taken a ton of pictures of Pender Island, in fact almost too many. As I sat down to look for images for this blog post I had no idea where to start; literally thousands and thousands of images shot in the last few weeks. In the end I decided to share one of our “locals”. This is Starvation Bay. Amazingly, it almost always looks this beautiful. It is a beautiful spot any time of day, but my favorite is at low tide. The rock pools are filled with amazing finds once the water recedes.

An additional feature of this location is that it has a view across to the Poet’s Cove resort. The resort has a steady flow of float planes taking off and boats coming and going; lots to watch for sure.

The seal even “talked” to us before swimming away; now our three-year old knows what sound a seal makes.

This is a beautiful beach and well worth visiting if you have the chance.
