Here's my wife Christine and daughter Catherine going ashore in the dingy. One advantage of tieing to shore is that you can easy pull yourself across in the dingy by using the mooring line. The crystal clear blue water of the harbor and its rocky bottom are easily seen in this view of the NE tip of Burnt Island, just south of Harbour Is.
The islands in this area are typically covered with wild blueberry plants. Otherwise, they consist principally of granite! In a few low spots and crevices, water collects, moss grows, and occassionally a tree takes root.
This photograph also illustrates my favorite mooring technique when tieing to a shoreline tree.
After two days of fishing and swimming in these protected waters, we cast off for more adventure, taking our exit via The Gun Barrel
