This looks a lot like Rose Spit up where Guy lives.

Cool B-n-P, even got a seagull in there. I was thinking of going to Rose Spit today, not a very nice day so far though.

but don't not-so-nice days make it more interesting? and I sort of thought that now that you're in this time of year, Nice days are pretty hard to come by. Even though its only about maybe 100' wide, this spit actually wouldn't be anywhere as interesting as Rose Spit, since this one mostly just separates the very very very expensive houses and their boats from the sea, not Canada from Alaska and the inner passage (or what even you call the water east of the island) from the Pacific. So does Rose Spit get all kinds of stuff washing up from either direction?

OOOPs - and of course, Thanks, Cal and Guy. Where were my manners!

Hecate Strait separates us from civilization, a very dangerous piece of water. Depending on conditions more treasures come to shore from the spit on down the east side. Guy.

a very long spit from what i can see would be worth the walk for shells like mine caused an uproar.

Thanks, Steve! Quite a few shells in the same family as yours as well. I guess wildlife spreads all around the world!

Cool shot. It does look like Rose Spit, I have only seen pictures because we never did make it there. I have a picture on my page of Hecate Strait...pretty gloomy, but very dangerous indeed. Everyone on the ferry looked like they had downed a two four before they got on. I sat outside by myself most of the time and did not get many pictures because you had to hang on. They way back was calm though.
