Butedale is an isolated derelict salmon cannery rapidly being reabsorbed into BC's marine and temperate rainforest ecosystems that has some logs cabled together and plywood screwed on top for tieing up to. The caretaker asked for 50 cents a foot, so we paid a little more and gave him some canned pop as well. Interesting place to wander around and there's a nice trail to the old powerhouse and lake.

Shearwater has a proper marina for a higher price, but we felt more at home with the vagabond riff-raff sailboats and commercial fishing boats on the breakwater floats

What was going on in the pool?
