On the last day of September we headed to Quadra Island with Judy May, a friend who was visiting from Corner Brook, Newfoundland. The day was sunny with light northwest winds and we were looking forward to checking out some of the easy hiking trails. We first headed to Rebecca Spit where we had done a first rate sea kayak trip earlier in the summer (see http://keithnicol.blogspot.ca/2015/05/sea-kayaking-in-rebecca-spit-area-of.html). Our plan was to hike to the end of the spit and we drove to the large parking lot at the end of the road and set off toward the end of the spit. Parking lot coordinates are: 50 6’ 5.66” N and 125 11’ 16.15” W. This trail is about 1 km long and so the entire hike will take you about 30 minutes of walking. But the scenery is magical and we spent about an hour overall taking photos and watching the fog roll in and out along the shore.
