A spit or sandspit is a deposition landform found off coasts. At one end, spits connect to land, while at the far end they exist in open water.[1] A spit is a type of bar or beach that develops where a re-entrant occurs, such as at cove’s headlands, by the process of longshore drift. Longshore drift (also called littoral drift) occurs due to waves meeting the beach at an oblique angle, and backwashing perpendicular to the shore, moving sediment down the beach in a zigzag pattern. Longshore drifting is complemented by longshore currents, which transport sediment through the water alongside the beach. These currents are set in motion by the same oblique angle of entering waves that causes littoral drift and transport sediment in a similar process.[2]” Wikipedia

We went to Horne Lake Caves Provincial Park which is close to Qualicum
We didn’t go into the caves because we couldn’t take the dogs in.

“The tiny oceanside community of Fanny Bay is situated on Baynes Sound, the sheltered narrow strait separating Vancouver Island and Denman Island. The tranquil setting of Fanny Bay overlooks the Strait of Georgia and the Gulf Islands, with the Coastal Mountains of the British Columbia mainland as the backdrop.

“Fanny Bay is home to the world-famous Fanny Bay Oysters, growers, processors and exporters of farm-raised Pacific oysters and Manila clams. Their processing plant provides pre-arranged tours of their facility, and will answer some of your questions, like “Where do baby oysters come from?”, “Do you ever find any pearls?”, or “Is it true that oysters are an aphrodisiac?”. – Vancouver Island.com

  2. The carving of the eagle is stunning, don’t you think? The blue tags in the mud – is that baby oysters growing? Can you just walk near them? Lovely pictures, many memories.

    • It is, I think I have a photo of myself posing next to it.
      I think the photos were taken at low tide, the oysters are in net bags, one can walk up to them and buy fresh oysters at the store.
      I’m glad you liked them, we are thinking of going to the island again next year, as it is one of our favorite places.
      I see some of the links have changed in the meantime, I will update them.
