Ten years coming to Saltspring Island and this was my first visit to this popular local beach. Nice weather, but I was early, so there were only a couple of dog walkers. This is a small south-facing pocket beach between rocky points - both with homes perched on top. The beach is backed by a 5-foot bank, the erosion of which displays an elegant stratigraphy of soils and broken clam shell - clearly this place has been someone's home, or at least their kitchen, for a very, very long time.
