Fleming Beach

Turning further to the right from yesterday's photo and facing west now, we are looking further up the west coast of the Vancouver Island. The cove immediately in front of us is Fleming Beach. It has a boat ramp and a large rock face much favored by local rock climbers for practice. The entrance to Fleming Beach is protected by a breakwater. There is also a quiet picnic area here called Buxton Green. Macaulay Point, though a park, belongs to the Department of National Defense. Fleming Beach and Buxton Green are contiguous parks. All are managed by the Township of Esquimalt. Saxe Point Park is visible a little further west and that small white tower you can see in the far distance is the Fisgard Lighthouse. Most of these features have been marked on the photo below.(You can't see Buxton Green because it is hidden beneath the brambles in the foreground.) There is also a nice satellite photo of this areaHERE.

It does look like an interesting little township. It'd be a good place to set a murder mystery.
