The sea wall

There are many, many beautiful trails and parks in Powell River that are easily accessible, I've written about a few in the past but I don't think I've ever posted about the Powell River sea wall. It's not a long walk, maybe two km, but the views are spectacular and the water is so clear that it's easy to sea the ocean bottom full of starfish, oysters and seaweed.

Art and I walked it yesterday, a wonderful way to start the New Year, never mind that we were eating jelly donuts....

Snow capped mountains on Vancouver Island.

Unbelievably clear water.

Not sure why there is a barge full of rocks here but Art thinks the rocks will be used for a new breakwater at the marina, seems logical to me.

The nice but cold weather will be with us for another day or two, a nice way to start the New Year.

Those rocks are the ones they've taken out of the north section of the barge facilty breakwater, which is being removed as part of the South Harbour expansion.

What a beautiful place to go for a walk.

I've only walked it once. Looks like a good place to return when I get a bit more time in town. - Margy

How lovely! My husband and I have made a number of trips to Canada but have never visited your area. That's something we'd like to do someday.

Have a wonderful new year.
