Nitinat Lake, Vancouver Island.
“Nitinat Lake – is connected to the wild Pacific Ocean by a channel and this connection gives the lake “ocean-like” characteristics. For example, the lake is about 40% salt water; it is tidal – rising and falling about 5 feet during our visit (See the tideline in the second photo); it also has an abundance of Dungeness crabs, salmon, seals, sea otters, eagles, etc.
Also the Carmanah Walbran Valley (Home to ancient old growth Stika Spruce and Cedar trees some estimated to be over 1,000 years old) is about 20 minutes away and has great trails for hiking (3rd picture). The 4th picture is looking up between three ancient Sitka Spruce trees called the Three Sisters.
Loving the Tent. Regards, George”
