The dock is all the Island, You can see the pieces of stone to tie the boats. Tradition says that Island was made with rocks tossed by sailors:

According to legend, the islet was made over the centuries by the seamen who kept an ancient oath after finding the icon of Madonna and Child on the rock in the sea on July 22, 1452. Upon returning from each successful voyage, they laid a rock in the Bay. Over time, the islet gradually emerged from the sea. The custom of throwing rocks into the sea is alive even nowadays. Every year on the sunset of July 22, an event called fašinada, when local residents take their boats and throw rocks into the sea, widening the surface of the island, takes place.








I guess the answer is good enough. The Island is called Gospa od Skrpjela t(he one posted) and the other is Sveti Dorde.

Looks like the Pacific North West again. All the boats are Princess something.
Princess Louisa Inlet, BC?? Never been there; just a guess.

Not Victoria nor Princess Louisa... but in fact both of those are approx 100 NM from where this actually is. It is BC, of course....

Looks like it. I figured it had to be on the West side of Vancouver Island somewhere - you're just quicker than me

Edit: That makes it sound like Ucluelet is on the West side..... never mind, you got it anyway
