Island beauty

This view was captured in the Brentwood Bay area of the southern part of the island
 

but, heading further north, the Campbell River marina came into view

 
and this colourful landing enticed would-be water taxi/tour customers 


Further inland I encountered the Campbell River en route to Elk River Falls

 
. . . and a couple of intrepid fishermen in the rejuvenated Campbell River Second Island
salmon spawning and rearing habitat

The riverside walk was delightful

Wait til you see what happened when I saw this guy on my way back to the car park ! ....

I loved the sound of those rushing, powerful waters



The beauty of the rainforest environment fills my senses every time!



. . . as promised, here's that fisherman proudly showing off his catch - which he subsequently released

What a delightful walk and so good to see that fisherman was rewarded for his patience - then threw it back to enjoy it's second life. I can see why you have fallen in love with this beautiful Island.

The soft sky in your first shot was just the beginning. I love marinas. I am a land lubber but I love boats for some reason. I love the pics of the river and the money shot is the fisherman holding his catch. Is that a salmon of some sort?

such beautiful nature to walk through.

So many interesting water views. And love the variety of greens.

How very pretty!

Yogi: Yes, it is a salmon - I believe this particular one is a Coho.

Our world is so beautiful. No matter where you go, we can find beauty all around us. Thanks for sharing.

What a great place. That whole part of the world is on my wish list - but it's a long list!

We went to Campbell River from Powell River the summer before last on a holiday. Our camping and kayaking trip didn't turn out as expected (our car broke down) but we did enjoy staying at Painter's Lodge while it was getting fixed. - Margy

My favorites are the blue hut on the water and the flowing river.
