Long Beach on the east coast of Graham Island, north of Skidegate; a gorgeous lonely expanse of coarse sand and pebbles. Low dunes separate it from the coastal road; in winter, waves break over the dunes and the road is sometimes flooded. Winds of 80km and higher are not uncommon. But it's summer and though swimming or sunbathing seem unlikely, the beach is welcoming. I'm delighted by these large open spaces after the confinement of Full Moon's cramped cabin and wheelhouse!
