I finally made it over to Hornby Island with my camera after all these years of living on Vancouver Island. My sister and I were there probably 20 years ago. We did a quick trip over to Tribune Bay on Hornby, a quick stop at some pottery shops on Denman Island and called it a day.
This trip was different. Our camera club members stayed at Hornby Island Dive Lodge for 2 nights and spent 3 days photographing the Island. We photographed Ford Cove & Marina. Helliwell Provincial Park. Grassy Point. Tribune Bay. Jeffrey Rubinoff Sculpture Park. Tim Biggins Anvil. Heron Rocks. There were spots we missed of course, but these are the ones we made it to. The weather was dry and sunny, the weekend was awesome! Here are my photo’s.
This is a link to a group of photo’s on Flickr which I took while on the Pub to Pub Trail here in Campbell River. It’s called the pub to pub trail because at either end of the walk (45-60minutes) was a pub. BUT, now there are no pubs. Salmon Pt Pub burnt down recently and The Fishermans pub closed down last year. Regardless, there are scads of people out there every day enjoying the scenery. The walk takes you along the Oyster River thru Old Growth Forest and then along the Ocean where the trail ends at Salmon Pt RV Resort. The walk is mostly level, but beware of roots! I’ve seen people pushing strollers and wheelchairs, so it can be done.
