Sombrio Beach Hike

All photos taken on May 19, 2022.

As we drove back out of Parkinson Creek to the chorus of HOLE! the question of what to do next was put to the group. B had another hike in mind, but was Patty up to it and was anyone else interested. Nobody had made a decision by the time we got back to Highway 14, so I turned right and the decision was made. We were going to do another short hike to Sombrio Beach to finish off our hiking day.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. Another wonderful for the Gould back catalogue. What a cool bridge that is, though Benji has my sympathy, I have recalled similar episodes with family dogs over the years. Such a pretty and (what looks like) secluded beach too.

    1. This hike was as easy as the first one was hard. Loved the swing bridge and the dead end was not too bad as it was a short trail. It would seem animals have better sense than humans as to what constitutes safe passage. Benji had obviously run into an open grate before (like in January, when we walked him to Siwash Rock in Vancouver). The main beach was a bit busier, but still secluded enough. Thanks for reading Leighton. Allan

  2. What a wonderful hike. I love the trail and the suspension bridge across the gushing river. I had to use Google to see where Sombrio Beach is located and apparently there’s a hidden waterfall within a narrow moss-covered canyon. Thanks for sharing. I hope all is well 🙂 Aiva xx
