If I knew then what I know now, I would have looked for available houses across the harbour in Dodge Cove when we were looking to move up here. Dodge Cove is one of my favourite local places to visit and I never leave without wishing we could move there! More land and sun than most property in Prince Rupert has to offer and only ten minutes across the harbour. It’s a small community without shopping or cars. It’s beautiful and quiet.
We came here recently after rough water towards Big Bay made us turn around and change our plans. Attempting to get to Big Bay was worth it though because we saw about forty eagles sitting on a herring pond frame. (click the below picture to learn more and see a few more pictures.)
The girls headed out for a hike up Mount Comblain or as some call it Buddha Hill. It starts out muddy and blow down makes for a bit more interesting hiking at times. We were laughing a lot of the way, mostly because Lily’s constantly getting stuck in mud.
The laughing continued when we arrived at the first route marker for the disc golf course. It certainly wasn’t like most of the disc golf courses I’ve been on. I was surprised at the views at the top of the hike. Among the many islands we could see from this vantage point was Lucy Island.
After hiking we all met for a short walk to the beach. I love our sometimes quirky, sometimes bouncy dog Kep.
The boys had stayed back to fish. Leif was so eager to try out his new rod and there were plenty of surfperch to catch and release. Before leaving for the day we all watched the kids catch a few more fish.
