Genoa Bay Low Tide
Lets step back in time now. That is what it is like to go to Genoa Bay. This post is for Sky Watch Friday, Weekend Reflections, Scenic Sunday, Weekly Top Shots, Best Post of the Week, and Simple as That Sunday. Check out Fabulous Friday and all these wonderful memes to see shots from around the world. Most meme hosts try to screen the blogs listed so it is a safe way for my readers to see nature around the world. That is why I only go to meme sites, they are prescreened a bit and mostly on nature and usually not many ads or promotions. These shots were Straight Out of the Camera some using a wide angle lens.
Genoa Bay is on the north side of Cowichan Bay on southern Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. It is at the south end of Sansum Narrows. We went there just a few days ago and it turned out to be a really warm sunny day. The drive there is on a scenic long, winding country road so when you finally pop out at the bay you feel like you are in an isolated and remote place. It is so quiet and the water is so sheltered and calm. There are a few quaint picturesque float homes decorated with funky art stuff and some wonderful sculptures. Really good mariner facilities also at the marina and a nice little cafe. We had a picnic at a sunny spot there overlooking the bay and I took zillions of pictures. It was low tide and I love low tide but when you combine low tide with good light and flat calm reflections that is the trifecta. Have a great and sunny weekend all.
Thank you to the bloggers who host the above memes and who visit all the blogs, comment to them and check them out and pay for the linky. It is a lot of work for them and takes a lot of time. Without the memes there would be very little contact between bloggers especially those of us who blog without ads and are just here to blog about nature. Also when the linky does not work they get it fixed! Bloggers go nuts when the linky does not work.
