Courtenay & Royston

Now, continuing the journey of discovering the delights of Vancouver Island . . . .
I came across Air Force Bay in Courtenay which I understand is also the area from which various sea planes take off. It was a glorious and comfortably warm day, and the well made
walking trail along the bay beckoned.
There were wild berries in abundance - not only here, but throughout my 6 week travels around the centre of the island.

I didn't spot the creator of this amazing piece of engineering!

A significant community project is currently underway to restore the Salt Marsh Lagoon for
marine life connectivity

Courtenay River Walk
Within a short drive I was in Royston and there in the bay were these shipwrecks,
the fascinating story behind which you can read at

I invite you to do some exploring of your own by visiting
where you will see a wide variety of scenes from around the world.
(Grateful thanks to the hosts for enabling us to participate)

Another delightful walk in a new area. Delicious blackberries and interesting shipwrecks.

The ship wrecks add something to the scenery, not sure what though. Those walks look beckoning.
