Walsh Cove in Paddington Channel, Desolation Sound was the perfect point for a rendezvous with friends. One of the greatest pleasure about this section of the Salish Sea is the glorious, clear, warm water.
While swimming in this balmy, mid~seventy degrees bath, it is impossible not to be awestruck by the snowfields on the surrounding high mountain peaks. The run off from these mountains dilutes the salt water making it feel very silky, clean and refreshing on the skin.
Natural rock ledges in these waters seem to have been made for mermaids to linger.
Before the sun sets, we love to swim to these heated rocks to share a glass of rosé, and maybe pop open and oyster or two that can be found on the rocks.
But how to get the accouterments to shore?
Glasses and oyster knives are carried on a paddle board in Sea bags, made of recycled sails.
While the rosé can be twisted into a turbans with a fouta, which will also serve as a towel/tablecloth/sarong on shore.
I hope you are enjoying these glorious dog days of summer!
