The Beach


Morning, and our view of the sea!



Breakfast is included, and we had this room all to ourselves.



The coffee, orange juice, butter, jam, milk, etc, has arrived. ...Don doesn't fold up too well...



After breakfast, and while Marion and John went to explore in one direction, I wanted to go back to the rocks, because the tide was higher!



We don't get this kind of driftwood on Vancouver Island: it's bamboo!



We do get this type of debris, though...



The approach to the shrine area...



This has been a shrine for 650 years.



The rope gets replaced three times each year.



Ok, that looks better, the water is covering the lower sections.



Ok, do you notice... Hey, are those jet skis?



Why, yes, they are! Is this allowed?
