Low tide at Grimmer Bay

Morning sun illuminates Grimmer Bay, which is named after Washington Grimmer, a Pender Island pioneer. He was the island’s first postmaster, bringing the mail by rowboat from a neighbouring island.


The trees on the tiny islet are looking very autumnal, probably as much due to the stress of a very dry summer as it is to a change of season. I have a vision of this scene shrouded in a light mist. When conditions are right, I’ll go back to see if the reality matches my imagination.
