Rose Harbour Sunset
We spent one very pleasant evening in Rose Harbour across the water from our cabin – we were invited for an excellent dinner by Susan, one of the Rose Harbour residents. Rose Harbour is a former whaling station and the only piece of private property in the boundaries of Gwaii Haanas. Three different people live there most of the year (and have done so for years, some since before the park was formed) and each caters to the tourist trade with accommodation and by running people around the local area in their boats if they need it – many of their customers are kayakers.
We were treated to a wonderful sunset while we were over there – a real treat for us since our cabin faces south in a narrow bay the headlands of which block both the sunrise and sunset. The pictures are looking out the southern arm of Houston Stewart Channel where it runs between Ellen Island (Kilgii Gwaay which is on the right in the middle picture) and Kunghit Island, on which Rose Harbour is situated. The mountains/hills in the background are on the south end of Moresby Island.
This link catalogues my posts about volunteering on the Kilgii Gwaay archaeological site project.
I was accompanied on this trip by one of the Quimper Hittys, Tansy who is blogging about the trip from a doll’s view and you can find those posts here. She has done a blog on the whaling station, here.
