Recently we were way down in South Pender. This sounds pretty silly when you consider the island is only 13 square miles in size, but because of our location we have to drive halfway up the island to cross the bridge from North Pender to South Pender, only to drive all the way back down and end up level with our house, but on a completely different island.
The twisty drive means that often one or two of the kids (sometimes more) end up asleep by the time we hit our destination. It isn’t a fast drive with the ups, and downs and ins and outs at a whopping 50km/hour.
On this particular day we had sleeping kids when we reached Gowlland Point so I went to take a look at the beach on my own. As I walked the quiet beach I noticed movement on the rocks to my left. Seeing something brown and furry, I decided to take a closer look.
I managed to get halfway across the slimy rocks and get a few shots (with the wrong lens of course!) before the furry little guy ran off. After a little bit of research it seems to be a mink that I saw.
