This third volume in Theo's Secret Beaches series is a comprehensive guide to dozens of beaches on the east coast of Vancouver Island between Campbell River and Qualicum. While some of them are well used by people who live nearby, some are tucked just off the highway and others are hidden at the end of a labyrinth of roads. Just as important as finding a particular spot is knowing what to expect. Theo provides detailed information for each location so that you can find the right place for the activity you seek. The book includes Theo's hand-drawn maps, photographs and paintings. Want a place where the kids can scamper barefoot across acres of fine white sand? Try Seaman Road near Saratoga Beach. Eager to explore forested ravine trails leading to protected sandy beaches? Try Seal Bay north of Comox. How about a picnic in the car while watching the spring brant geese migration? Check out Seacroft Road near Qualicum. Looking for an easy place to launch a kayak for a paddle to Sandy Island Marine Park? Head for Argyll Road north of Union Bay. Refresh your pleasure in the shore and head out to picnic, play, swim, watch winter storms or just enjoy the waves.
