Along with all the growing success in Howe Sound and the attention to North East Bay [Texada Is E], a couple of us decided to bite the bullet and groundproof all the sites and islands in the lower part of Jervis Inlet including Hotham Sound. So as with Howe Sound, we gathered all the info we could and then marked every interesting location [by Google Earth waypoints], marked the boundaries from what we knew of land ownership [only want public land] , planned the days and loaded our gps's. This info has been building up for years with lots of good real info from Reed Clarke and lots of hopes and questions by me. I took 1151 photos and Nick Heath took a little less and with notes we have a fairly good idea of what's out there - we did miss some areas because of time or weather [we were in an open skiff for landing]. The info will be added in the next few months, but for a slight overview of what it is like there have a look at this jpg I threw together - click on if for full size to see the icons. There are some picturesque spots here that are just great! Many of the landings are on rockshelves so plastic or beater boats may be best, but wow what an array of possibilities that are really quickly close to large population areas. [So Nick Heath and I spent 5 long days visiting [sometimes motoring slowly past] all these sites - think of how much paddling time could be spent up here!] Keep in mind that one regional grand overview of this and Howe Sound is that if we can break the lower sunshine coast barrier [ie find or persuade an intermediary site into being], that all of this plus the popular Sechelt Inlet would all be accessible without car from the beaches of the lower mainland!
