Botany Bay

I could not sleep this morning, so I decided to drive to Port Renfrew on the west coast of Vancouver Island. This is a 110 Km drive each way on a very windy road (very fun to drive if you know how to drive corners1). My destination was Botanical Beach Provincial Park, a nice short (a couple of kilometres) hike to some amazing beaches. Along one stretch of road I came across this image, looking across to the USA.

the farther north I went, the more fog and rain I found, Once I got to to botanical Beach, the light and fog were almost perfect and I was able to get this image..

As the morning progressed more and more people started showing up. I was surprised at how many families came to the beach. At one time I was looking at a rock covered with people and thought it looked like a bunch of people had been photoshopped into the scene. I did get this image with just one person though…
