New Years Day – Pender Island, BC, Canada

We brought in the New Year with a little bit of gardening followed by a visit to South Pender Island. Down on South Pender Island we decided to walk the Brooks Point / Gowlland Point connector path. As it was a rainy day I chose to travel light, no camera, no sketchbook, no phone. However I did run back to get a quick picture of the beach at Gowlland Point that leads to the navigational marker at Brooks Point.

The Brooks Point walk with the new connector is just an amazing walk. A mix of ridge walking overlooking the sea and walking beaches rimmed with driftwood. In addition we also have the treat of walking through a wooded area and over boardwalks. It is one of the most interesting walks on the island. I will definitely have to do a detailed post of this walk in the future complete with pictures.

For now this one picture will trigger memories of a great walk on a drizzly New Years Day where we stood on an empty beach watching a seal swim about in the grey sea.

  1. We took a walk along the beach today too. My favorite thing to do every New Year’s. 🙂

      It is a great way to spend New Years. We thought others would have the same idea but we had the beach to ourselves. Happy New Year!

  2. Just lovely; congratulations on a great start to the new year.
