Please come with me on a little tour. I'd enjoy showing you a bit of the neighbourhood. As you can tell by the pictures, the weather's cooperating. As we approach Dodge Cove in our boat, we leave the red buoy or the "red can" to starboard. The rule is "Red-Right-Return", by which is meant that when you Return to the harbour, you must keep the Red can to your Right. Got it? Don't forget now, for if you do, you will probably run the boat onto the rocks, for the channel is narrow! To the north of the 'red can' you can see Mt. Morse; the beginnings of Alaska lie a mere 50 km beyond.
After we pass the buoy we see Hospital Island to our right. Not much left of that three-story building, is there? In this climate vacant structures tend to have a short life and once a roof starts leaking, nature takes over in short order.
Straight ahead of us we see some of the houses of Dodge Cove, most of them situated close to the water.


Once the boat is secured to the dock it's only a short walk to "terra firma". (Approximately 300 metres) On a nice day like today, the kids like to go swimming here. The climate here is surprisingly mild.
At the 'Welcome to Dodge Cove' sign you must decide whether to turn right or left. It's up to you. But first, let's see what's new on the bulletin board: Annual Arts Guild fee is due next month. A dock committee meeting next Saturday and a card that says: "Thanks for a wonderful time".
Before we start off, lets pause a moment to take a look at this spectacular rainbow. Rainbows are common to this area in the spring and summer. That is why they call the City of Prince Rupert the "City of Rainbows".
