Today we pulled up to Hamilton Beach, near Port Browning on Pender Island. We thought we would give it one last try hoping it would be cleaner with fewer tourists on the island in the middle of winter.
As we parked our vehicle we noticed an Alberta “rig pig” truck . Being from Alberta we recognize them readily (style of truck plus the Alberta plates make it pretty easy, plus the dress of the driver). We knew it wouldn’t bode well. The driver walked up the path to the “camping area” where a camp fire was obviously blazing due to the massive quantity of smoke billowing into the air.
Hamilton Beach is always the worst beach on Pender Island. It seems to attract the most disrespectful types. Perhaps it is the types of “campers” it attracts, due to the beach side campground at the Port Browning Resort. Perhaps the resort needs to encourage its campers to even be slightly respectful of the beach and the sea. All I know is that this beach is consistently disgusting and revolting thanks to the disrespectful “campers”.
