Saltery Bay Seagull

The Saltery Bay Provincial Park day-use area is a great spot for a summer picnic, winter stroll, or launching a boat. We got two out of three.

Our good friend John helped us borrow his brother's tin boat to take a quick spin on the chuck (ocean). It may be winter, but we can get nice days with calm seas.

To get to the launch ramp, you had to pay a toll to the resident gull. Fortunately, his fee was a simple snack.

Near the day-use area is a year-round campground at Mermaid Cove where there's an underwater statue and conditions perfect for scuba diving. There's also nearby Kent's Beach, a private seaside resort with shoreline cabins and camping areas. So many choices to enjoy. -- Margy


  1. That looks so peaceful. There's something about distant mountains with a body of water in front of it that makes me want to be there!

  2. That's a very pretty area - I'm intrigued by the underwater statue.

  3. Lovely post. Looks great there.

  4. Very pretty spot! And you always make a visit an adventure (sometimes a tranquil one). Nice looking critter in the orange vest too. :p

  5. What a great place to visit, a boat and lovely views of the water. Cute shot of the gull. Have a happy day!

  6. Tash - He's a critter I like keeping around for sure.

    Thanks all for the kind words. It was a fun day on the water.
