Dawn at Spenser's IslandDawn at Spenser's IslandDawn at Spenser's Island

About 2 hours after low tide
On the morning of day 9, Bob got the CG owners to let him use their phone and started calling campgrounds. Finally found one with space for both rigs. It was only about 25 miles away. It turned out to be a nice county owned campground right next to the bay. Our site is labeled “Spare RV” It is actually one site, but big enough for both rigs and has a decent view of the bay. Instead of being right down on the water, we are probably 50 or 60 feet up the bluff rising from the beach. There is a trail that goes down to the beach. On our first walk on the beach, we found a couple small pieces of sea glass. After lunch, we drove into town. Stopped first at the visitors Centre/Geologic Museum. They wanted $8/person for the Geologic museum, so we didn’t go in. Gena & Charlie went into the TeeShirtery and successfully avoided buying anything. Charlie bought stamps for postcards she wanted to mail here in Canada - - She was stunned when she found out they cost $1.38/card !!!! We then went out to the pier to see what we could see. The tide

This is about three hours after the dawn photo
was out and we found several lobster boats tied up to the dock but sitting on the ocean bed. We didn’t find them until Bob walked around the end of the pier and found them high and dry. See the photos.
