Gowlland Point Views – South Pender Island, BC, Canada

blog gowlland _3688 aIt has been ages since we have gone down to the beach at Gowlland Point. The last time, in fact, was August. It seems we usually go to Craddock or Drummond as they are rarely busy, or we go to Brooks Point as it is simply awesome. Now I must qualify our family’s idea of “busy”, which is more than four people on the beach. Yes, I admit we have become “beach snobs”…we like having beaches to ourselves.

The huge rock is always a focal point. Every visit our children climb up on it to get a better view……but on a sunny day there is no such thing as a “better view” as the scenery in every direction is stunning.
