Canal Beach dip ‘refreshing’

To the Editor,

There are people who swim with whales or dolphins, or with a pool noodle.

I swam with the Mayor of Port Alberni at Canal Beach.

I have to say, it is marvellous to have somewhere so near for a swim on a hot day. Admittedly, it is not as beautiful as Qualicum or Sproat Lake—yet. Give it a year or two and native plants and other greenery will soften what this is: a previous industrial site, but what potential.

The water is clear, salty and buoyant.  What more could a person, or a whale or a mayor want?

Kudos to all those that have helped make this beach happen. It is going to be fabulous.

Margaret Growcott,

Port Alberni
