Cape Roger Curtis, Bowen Island

Over the Christmas holidays we drove to the Cape Roger Curtis area of Bowen Island, and I was sad to see how much it’s changed. It was once a remote area of the island with a dense second growth forest that could only be navigated through on foot. Now visitors can drive on a paved road through the area and count the plots of land marked for future houses.

These photos were taken near the lighthouse, which on previous visits took about an hour or so to hike in to see. I suppose it was too much to hope that this part of the island would be left as it was and not end up as yet another subdivision.
