Another PNW Sound

Enough Desolation Sound. On to Quatsino Sound on the northwest side of Vancouver Island. It cuts almost all the way through the Island.

Kains Island light at the entrance to Quatsino Sound.

Winter Harbour which used to be a major fishing centre is just north of the entrance.

There is a boardwalk along the beach.

The intrepid crew at the dock at the Outpost in Winter Harbour. (That mature gentleman on the right is me.)

Looking east down Quatsino Sound

Looking west from the vicinity of Quatsino Village

Looking south from the Village toward Neroutsos Inlet.

The fishing is great in the Sound. This was a great way to wait out hurricane force winds off the Brooks Peninsula.
