Given the recent restrictions on many of the waterfront access sites in and around Prince Rupert, have you found somewhere new? Do you have a place to go to for a nice picnic, to skip rocks, to walk along the harbour?
The places I miss most are the Ridley Island beaches and the waterfront access from Fairview to Kwinitsa(?).
I always thought I had it bad growing up without the gondola up the mountain and scheduled ferry service to Salt Lakes Provincial Park- it turns out I had more to be thankful for than I knew.
In regards to Salt Lakes- I understand it to have been replaced by Oliver Lake- giving Oliver Lake Provincial Park status instead. Sadly, the beaver has gone AWOL at Oliver and it has turned into a stump swamp…
Anyway… old story I suppose.
I now like to go and chance my life along the trail from Rushbrooke to the Seaplane base- trees, mudslides and all. And even sit at the parking lot at Rushbrooke on the rocks- when there aren’t old fish carcasses lying around.
Do you have any nice places that aren’t too secretive to share?
Thanks and happy fall!
