It's a short drive from the Ruckle Farm to the Ruckle Provincial Park picnic area and trailhead.
On this beautiful sunny day we bear right, taking the path to Beaver Point (named after the Hudson's Bay Company paddle steamer Beaver, the first steam boat on the B.C. coast).
Here are some scenes from that walk.
The path to the left is more rugged but very rewarding, as it hugs the coast and we pass beach after beach and vista after vista.
We come to a beach full of inukshuks. Someone spent a lot of time here!
The last time we hike the path, the day before we leave, we take our lunch, prepared for a long day but still don't make it to Yeo Point, the end of the marked path. It's just too rugged for us oldies!
On the way back, we take our time, basking in the sun on the beaches that we can clamber down to.
And we're back at the picnic area. I get E. to take my photo with my trusty walking stick before I toss it away for the next hiker.
