Living Aboard a Boat The Central Coast

A (Very Good) Day in the Life

Wednesday, November 19, 2014S.V. CAMBRIA

Over the last 15 years, David and I have had our fair share of exceptional days on the water, too many to mention in fact.  But we both agree that the day we discovered the western beach on Fury Island in British Columbia’s Central Coast ranks high on the list of bests.

It started with the promise of a beautiful white midden beach on the west side of Fury Island and a need to explore . . .

. . . followed by the need to be silly . . .

But the greatest need of all, was to take it all in.

  1. Not sure of definitions? What is a midden beach? Or rather, what makes this a midden beach and how would I recognize one?
    thanx,

    1. A midden is an ancient waste dump where things like harvested shellfish were thrown out and, over thousands of years, have been broken down by the elements. Not all shell beaches are middens, though, and the best way to recognize one is if the area you're in is the ancestral land of the First Nations. In the case of Fury Cove, the continue to Owikeeno use the area to gather shellfish.
