Our first day out there, we went to some friends of ours who live out by Cowichan Bay and they took us out crabbing. It was absolutely gorgeous out and they took us all around the area along Salt Spring Island and out to Maple Bay, etc. I think I spent the whole time wishing I could win the lottery and live in one of those houses clinging to the hills with a little boat and dock. Anyway, we didn’t catch much, but I had never been crabbing before, so it was neat just to watch what was going on. Plus they gave us enough crab to have a massive campfire feast on our first night camping, YUM!
The tide-pools were teaming with life, I have never seen anything like it. Every pool was completely different, filled with colorful, strange sea creatures. It was fantastic.
We realized that we didn’t pack utensils, so my husband made us chopstick using the one camping knife we found LOL!! The 3rd picture above was the Banana slug that loved Belles dog food.
Below are just some pictures of the beaches you could hike down to. The hike down to the beaches was about 2-5 km depending on the hike.
