I worked on a Parks Branch youth crew there on my first summer job in 1975 (I think) the first summer Naikoon Park opened up.

Indeed .... but they are developing the north beach. I think there's only one place like that in the world. Should never have been touched.

This pic is of the boat launch that we used to go through Karheen Passage and into Sea Otter Sound. This boat launch is a door to a magic place. The ramp looks like it's paved but it's gravel. That rock looks like a big ugly fish.

2nd pic is of Point Baker on the NW corner of Prince of Wales Is. No roads at all here. Just boats. 3rd pic is a nice commuter in town.

What do you mean "developing"?

When I was there in 1996, I stayed in a B&B on the North beach. There had been "development" for many years at that location. There was also a road that went onto the sand, on which many folks had mired their cars, pickups, etc and lost them to the rising tide. Tow Hill was a great vantage point to observe the tranquility of the whole beach. I hope none of that has been changed.

Keith,
We were there in 03. It probably wasn't much changed since you were there or since we were there. I'm saying everything from the old radio station to Tow Hill should be undisturbed beach ... never should have been sold into private lots. It should all have been a park and a proper park at that. Never should have given the Spit to the Haida. Nothing has been done w it. It just sits there and suffers abuse by most that go there. Shame on Canada.

Stelaine,
Very appropriate picture for today! Looks like something very bright is just over the horizon. Of course it's the sun but if one had a wandering mind ... aliens!

Eric,

We lived in central Florida and could see shuttle launches from the back yard. The night launches were very similar in appearance which is to say they were spellbinding!

From our (rented) terrace, San Carlos, Sonora, Jan 18, 2013

Beats winter in the PNW... (but sorry about the clouds). The two marinas here are pretty quiet this winter and two or three of the trawlers that were for sale in 2011 are still on the market.

Remember that you are looking east, and on the far eastern shores of our country is a place called Washington DC. Aliens. That is the only explanation.
