|Paddy's Mile Stone and Mount Maxwell on Saltspring Island|
It reminds me of a miniature Ailsa Craig, an island in the outer Firth of Clyde in Scotland. Although I was born in Scotland, I've only ever seen Ailsa Craig from the air, so fellow bloggers and family across the "pond" will please forgive me if, in fact, they see no similarities at all!
|Mt. "Max" and the "stone"|
Following the rocky shores, we turned towards Octopus Point and, en route, are reminded that, indeed, it is winter - even here! In the shade and without the warmth of the low January sun, the cooler air is invigorating.
|A small reminder, it IS winter...icicles!|
Back in the sunshine, we reach Octopus Point. Apparently some of the largest octopus, anywhere, are swimming beneath our kayaks. I can tell you, we won't be checking that out, anytime soon!
|It's a bird...it's a plane...yes, it's a plane!|
|Landing at shaded and frosty Burgoyne Bay for a warm lunch|
|Seaside dining - "window seats" always available this time of the year!|
