We live on a 33 acres parcel of land that lies between the Salish Sea and Hague Lake on Cortes Island, BC. So seeing wildlife is part of our daily life. We get to see beavers, ducks, wolves, eagles, and so many more species. Deer is also one of our regular visitors but it’s still a very rare occurrence for one of them to Surprise me as it comes up the cliff just when I lift my head up from a project in my studio to look out the window!!! “How long was he watching me?” I think to myself. And yes, I can see you even though your camouflage into the backyard is almost perfect…
On Cortes Island, we have two beautiful lakes which are very close together and are connected by a unique Narrow waterway. Besides this passage, there really is no other way to get from Gunflint Lake to Hague Lake via water. It’s a rare sight to see people taking this route. And you have to paddle under an old bridge to boot!!! In this photo, my very nice neighbours show us the way through in their canoe.
