We return from a month of posts about Haida Gwaii to my own neighbourhood. I plan on another post or two about the Kilgii Gwaay site when I can get it organised, but for now we are back home. Shortly after my return from Haida Gwaii I walked to the grocery store with my camera. On my way home, back pack loaded with all the heavy groceries (why is it that when on foot groceries include 4l of milk, butter, juice and similar?), I went down to the Gonzales Bay beach and walked along to the next stair case a block or two closer to home, stopping to take these pictures.
Gonzales Beach is a sun bathing beach, one of a couple in Victoria that have sand. Fortunately, this nice day seemed to catch people by surprise, and was mid-week, so I could use my camera without my view being all cluttered up with bikinis. Gonzales Bay has featured in previous posts from the winter, like this one, but for some reason I have not shown you a picture from down at sand level. In the distance of the picture above is Harling Point, setting for most of my photos in this blog.
BTW, for those of you that looked at my post yesterday in which I promised an embedded video – I forgot to add it, but have now done so, in case you are interested.
