As I pulled my canoe onto an idylic little beach behind Adze Head I notices a doe heading down the beach and into the woods.
Not such a remarkable event in my life but exploring the beach I came upon the reason she was there. She had left this little fellow
well hidden between two giant logs.
I spent the afternoon foraging the low tide smorgasbord and checked on him periodically. He didn’t move much.
I had heard that does will deposit their young and go off for hours but I had never actually come across one. It was just one of those small miracles that happen all around us if we pause long enough to notice.
If You Go:
At low tide there are several small beaches where you can land your canoe or kayak about a kilometer toward the ocean from the Port Renfrew Hotel.
