A walkway to a little island appears during minus tides only 40 days per year, right across the street from our hotel. We were kayaking during the lowest point this morning, but returned in time to wade out for a quick island visit before the water was again too deep to traverse. We first observed the isthmus when we arrived yesterday, and I’ve been saying and spraying the word at every opportunity since. You try it.
The view of Baker and so much more, from atop Mt. Constitution on Orcas Island. We could even see Vancouver’s downtown buildings. It was well worth having to fork out $10 for a Discovery pass, because I left ours at home. It also helps that I found $60 while beach combing after lunch. A stellar vacation day overall. Cheers!
